Spring Wildflowers in Ithaca, NY

The day was sunny and warm, so I took my Rebel and tripod for a tour of some wildflower gardens. First was a stop at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology trail, with many skunk cabbages emerging under the bridge that spans a swamp.  Fortunately, there was nobody to watch me lying on the bridge to take some photos.

Then it was off to the Cornell Mundy wildflower garden, where several wildflowers were in bloom.  I found more skunk cabbage as well as Hepatica, trout Lily, and Blood Root.  Again, the best view was flat on the ground with a macro lens.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.  Please give some feedback.
