Sunny Shades of Orange

Orange Hawkweed; Hieracium aurantiacum

Orange Hawkweed; Hieracium aurantiacum


  1. Those flowers look almost other worldly. They must be a welcome change in your environment, far from bare and snowy. The first flower is beautiful with specks of crimson. You are an awesome. natural photographer.

    1. Thank you, Ginger Mickey.

      The wildflowers are most welcome, healing in a way, after the stark winter. The brevity of their season makes them even more special.

      The hawkweed generally grows in the meadow or other open areas. This plant found a patch of light under some young conifers and I thought the old needles on the ground made for an interesting hue and bokeh.
