That last one #10 looks like an area I used to catch snapping turtles in.

I noticed one eastern painted turtle in the area and it slid into the water as I approached. I'm sure there are snappers there. I liked the reflections in the water on that middle pic above. I gotta go to bed. I'm tired.

The middle photo in post #6 has a certain quality about it that looks very natural. All of the photos are beyond nice.

What is that plant?? I just rescued 3 of them over in an area that is for sale and being developed near Lake Forest. I hadn't seen it before but thought it looked special and dug it up. Would love to know about it. Thanks, g

I was asking about the center picture with the five leaves that looks like a little green star. I'd love to know the others too. Thanks.

I don't know which post you are looking at but five leaves with a little green start that is unopened could be Trientalis borealis.

the center picture in # 5 is what I was hoping to save by digging it up. Do you know it? But in that same group, do you know the names of the other two plants? Fun stuff!!

The center photo of that post isn't Trientalis borealis. I thought it was Isotria verticillata but I'm not so sure any more and I won't be back up there to check up on it. The photo to the right I think is Onoclea sensibilis but that's another one where I'd have to go back to check on it. I was walking through there talking with friends and snapping as I was going when I should have been paying better attention and taking more close up photos. The photo to the left I think is a Prenanthes. Probably P. altissima, tremendous variability in the leaves on that one as noted here, Tall White Lettuce (Prenanthes altissima) Could you post some photos of the plants you picked up from the rescue. We may not be able to pin down what I took pics of but we might be able to pin down what you took pics of. Funny how all of us native plant people take plants from rescues in threes and buy plants in threes.
