First Wildflower

 

I’m working on a project to photograph wildflowers in Willow River State Park, but the first wildflower I’ve seen this year was on the North Country National Scenic Trail, three hours north of Willow River.  It’s a round-lobed hepatica.  The flower is about 1/2 inch and is two inches above the forest floor.  The resulting photo is below along with a few other shots from on the trail.
