Thimbleberry Plants, Ferns and Wild Raspberry Bushes
The thimbleberry plants with their beautiful white flowers are blooming in great abundance right now at the Arrow Lake. Their fruit is almost inedible, as it has too many seeds and too little flavour. On one of their leaves I captured a fascinating bug taking a nap in the hot afternoon sun. Ferns are everywhere in the woods and their leaves forever impress me with their forms and shapes. In my search for new aspects of nature I also came across a wild raspberry patch, which attracted dozens of bumblebees. Ignoring the more attractive flowers of the ubiquitous thimbleberry, they zeroed in on the humble raspberry flower. They were too quick for me to catch them with my camera. Enjoy.
