Drooping Trillium

I specifically sought out this flower. The Drooping Trillium is an endangered species in Ontario, with only one healthy stand remaining near London.

Waiting patiently for the proper lighting and spending nearly an hour framing the shot properly without harming the flower, I was able to create this backlit image.

I traveled to London, Ontario specifically for this image. I needed this flower to complete a set of all Ontario Trillium species. Ontario has five different trilliums, and you can see them all in a blog post I created.
