Minnesota Wildflowers

It's that time of the year again...the wildflowers are creeping out from under the fallen leaves of last year. This past weekend I took a long nature hike off the bluffs of the Mississippi River and found some great spring wildflowers.

The photo is the wildflower called Dutchman's Breeches. The odd shape of the flower makes it hard to get to the flower's nectar. Only bumblebees have mouths capable of reaching in far enough for the prize.
