Can you guess what this is a photo of?
While the photo does look like leaping chicken ballerinas (according to my wife), that isn’t the correct answer. Unfortunately, I have never had the opportunity to photograph leaping chicken ballerinas, though it is a lifelong goal of mine.
If you guessed it’s actually a photograph of Oenothera rhombipetala (fourpoint evening primrose) just after a rainstorm, you get the prize. Treat yourself to something from your cupboard. Chocolate, if you’ve got it.
The primrose photo was taken at the Niobrara Valley Preserve last summer. Below is another photo from the Preserve, showing the same primrose species from a very different perspective, and with some other company.
I hope your 2017 is off to a great start. I also hope we all get the opportunity to see some leaping chicken ballerinas real soon.
