Nature photography from a woman in the woods

Paintbrushes . . .

The Indian Paintbrushes are brightening up the meadows of daisies and buttercups. The are a shocking, neon orange color. Looking that the flower petals, it is easy to see how it got it’s name. To me, they are a symbol of summer.

  1. Those are beauties! I love the orange! So far this year I haven’t visited the only place around here where the orange ones grow.

    • Orange is the only ones I have ever seen … what other colors are there?

      • Bright reds and pale yellows. The reds ones are the brightest though.

  2. They are a symbol of summer to me too. Usually. They came up early here this year, when it was still spring. I think summer is rushing through the Bogs as fast as it can.

    I love the way you captured them. 🙂

    • Thanks Robin. They are so neon orange in color it is hard to capture them. Not many left here, either. The black-eyed susans are really looking good, though.
