19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Deep purple hanging bell flowers

I have a large flower and vegetable garden on my 3 acre property on Whidbey Island, Washington. I enjoy sitting quietly with my camera ready and seeing what nature brings to me. Morning light suddenly landed on a mayapple (podophyllum) named “Spotty Dotty," and I took the shot.
