(L. to R. & T. to B.)
Photo Site: Sugar Camp at Fourpeaks (next to last driveway on Stonehouse Road). Bloodroot blooms in moist, sunny spots along the brook and under the apple trees. It's the first wildflower of the Season. Trillium blooming overlaps the bloodroot, and continues longer, especially in shady places. Many trillium, too, in moist shady places along the abandoned portion of Stonehouse Road.
- (1-2) Bloodroot blossoms at Sugar Camp, May '97.
- (3) Composite: 3 blossoms with insect feeding nectar. (Can you identify this? A local expert says it is not a honey bee or any other vespid.)
(June 16, 2001) The bloodroot blossom visitor had been identified as a Flower Fly, in the Syrphidae family by Steve Roman, Champlin, MN email@example.com
Thanks, Steve for your help.
