09/03/09 - This wildflower is a Maryland Meadow Beauty. It is growing on the far side of the swampy area that I often visit. Yesterday I put on tall 'water' boots and walked around to the backside of the swamp to get this shot (and many others). I took many pictures at ground level where it was growing and then picked this flower and held it up to the sky to take another series of shots. I liked the bold blue and purple in this picture, so I decided to use this one for my POTD. I've been trying to get a good shot of this flower all summer! There are only a few locations nearby that I know of where it is growing.

I feel the 3-day weekend getting closer and closer. :-)
Thanks for your feedback on yesterday's moon POTD...
Have a great day!
