Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify

Photograph by Doug Couvillion: large fern fiddlehead in a Hawaiian tropical rainforest

These fiddleheads remind me of an animal embryo.  I suppose in a way they aren’t that different; newly forming leaves that aren’t fully developed yet.

This seemed like an appropriate post for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify.

Ferns, I

This post was inspired by Brenda of A Meditative Journey with Saldage.  When I saw these ferns they reminded me of the type of image she frequently posts.  That being said, I’m sure she would have done a far better job with them than I did.


Little Wood Satyr

This Little Wood Satyr alighted on some vegetation just ahead of me as I hiked through a marshy, open forest.  The strong, direct sunlight really lit up its wings.


Purple Irises

This bed of purple Iris flowers was in full bloom when we saw it.  The dark green leaves and rich purple flowers seem to go on for ever.
