This past Friday in the late afternoon, I took a short walk to clear my head and I was rewarded by the delicate flowers of Figure 1. This is the spotted knapweed and is a troublesome invasive in New England. But who can really fault its beauty – especially the delicate lavenders and violet tones. I took this photograph with my botanical rig, namely my IPhone 6, and yes I have fallen into the trap of photographing flowers.
