If you have been on the Red Cedar Trail recently you will have noticed that the Touch-me-nots are blooming all along the trail. The Spotted-touch-me-nots are the most common.

There are also a few Pale Touch-me-nots blooming.

The last time I was down at the Red Cedar Trail I couldn’t find many Pale Touch-me-nots. On a recent trip I found a lot of them blooming along the trail.

The Touch-me-nots are blooming along the Red Cedar  State Trail. They are the most prolific Flower this time of year. They are a bit difficult to photograph because they grow in a tangled mass of flowers. I like to photograph them covered in dew but there wasn’t a lot of dew on this day. I also like to use a photo stacking technique so  I can separate the flower from the background. On this day most of them were Spotted Touch-me-nots with only a few Pale Touch-me-nots.

On several recent walks I’ve managed to photograph a number of flowers. The Touch-me-nots are all over the place. The Groundnuts are a little harder to spot.

It’s that time of year when the Touch-me-nots are blooming along the Red Cedar Trail. Since they grow in a tangled mass it is difficult to photograph them in isolation. Ideal conditions are after a heavy dew and with no wind blowing. The Pale touch-me-nots were the most common with a few Spotted touch-me-nots around.
