Golden groundsel flowers and buds

Golden Groundsel Flowers and Buds 1271

Here’s golden groundsel, Packera obovata, in the woods along Bull Creek on March 5. The brown beyond the flowers and buds is from leaves that had fallen onto the ground over the winter, and through which the golden groundsel was emerging.

I used to do a lot of 3-D photography, but even in this 2-D image the bud at the lower right appears to me to be jutting in front of the frame of the picture. To see the many places where golden groundsel does its jutting—out of the ground if not out of picture frames—you can check the state-clickable map at the USDA website.
