Paint Brush-Castilleja

Friends, another wildflower, the Indian Paintbrush.  This plant grows both in the badlands and here in Wisconsin on the sandy barrens.   Over 200 species of Castilleja are found in many diverse environments.  Another plant that concentrates selenium and can at the same time, be a nutrient and toxic depending on the amount ingested.    A groups shot above and a close-up portrait below.  With this flower, the photographer almost needs to subtract saturation from the image to make it realistic. This is one of my favorite wildflowers.  til Tomorrow MJ
