Jack-in-the-pulpit Photo Study

I was excited to see the first Jack-in-the-pulpits poke out of the ground. However, as beautiful as this flower is, it really isn’t much of a photo subject.

The challenge is that they are a little gangly, and they grow in the woods, and although I love being in the woods, you’ll never see a photo like this hanging in the MET.

This one is about life size and is shown before its canopy of three leaves has fully emerged.

All considerations aside, I’m just thrilled that we have a bazillion Jack-in-the-pulpits growing.

We have a similar plant called commonly 'Lords and Ladies' (Arum maculatum) Steve. Yours appear to have darker lines over the green.

this plant/flower is quite interesting. i've seen something similar in the forest a few years ago during a trek. i enjoyed your photos.

They really don't look like much till you get them in macro!!! Might be why so few people transplant them to gardens...
