[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rue Anemone, Thalictrum thalictroides, formerly Anemonella thalictroides, is a native perennial wildflower found in deciduous woods in eastern North America. Because the flowers move easily in a breeze, it's also called Windflower. The flowers are sometimes pink, but are typically pure white.

Hello John,
You managed to fill the entire frame up with this beautiful flowering plant. Excellent white balance control and very well focused. From viewing the shadows and warm leaf colors, I'm guessing this was taken either at sunrise or late sunset. Great job!!

Hello John
Interesting species and beautiful photo with good composition, wonderful colors and impressive sharpness.
