Mid May at Mosquito HIll.

This flowering crab is in a large field where they hold outdoor events just behind the interpretive building.

Just as we got started on the path up the hill, we encountered this fox snake stretched across the path.

A cluster of jack-in-the-pulpits just getting going by the switch back

This year has been the most spectacular display of trilliums. They were all over above the north path.

If you look around you can usually find one protected from the wind for a closeup.

The greening of the hill shot looking up.

and looking down.

There was a rather dramatic view looking over the Wolf River valley.

There were even Trilliums among the Mayapples on top the hill.

A new maple leaf just opening looking as red as will in the fall.

I just couldn't pass up this solitary wood violet nestled in the tree roots.

Just as we started down the hill again, we encountered another fox snake.

In the oxbow, the grass that was just under the surface two weeks ago has now emerged.

At the frog pond, a big frog held absolutely still for me right next to the platform, but between the wide angle of the Populist and its natural camouflage, you can barely see it.

All with the Populist. .15mm pinhole 24mm from 24x36mm frame.
