These are individual flowers of the whorled loosestrife plant. The image above was shot at 1:1 on the film. The individual flowers are about 6-8 mm across. The individual flowers are arrayed at multiple levels along with the multi-storied leaf pattern as you proceed up the plant. Maybe there are twenty or so blooms on a plant about 30 cm high. June 5.

Common roadside flowers at Bent Tree. These were on the top of Big Stump Mountain. June 5.

Wild blueberries or huckleberries grow at various places close to our house. These were off to the right of Buckskull Court. June 5.

This white violet was still in bloom in early June on one of our favorite walking paths east of Buckskull Court. June 5.

This proud beetle was on a leaf along Buckskull Court. Shot at fee, 1:1 on film. Maybe he doesn't belong with these beautiful flowers, it's just that he is a trophy of my small-game hunting with a Canon. June 9.

This woodchuck came to visit us at the house. June 9.

This is a common flower around Chestnut Cove. This was along Chestnut Cove near the steep hill. June 14.
