The Ghost Plant

The rare wildflower called Indian Pipe, or Ghost Plant was spotted by my friend while hiking in the Redmond Watershed Preserve.  I simply had to photograph this wildflower.  I carefully planned the 4 mile hike into the wetlands.  I packed my micro four thirds camera, macro lens, special Gorilla tripod, and black velvet fabric for the background.  This morning, the weather was perfect.  Everything was set.  With the help of a friendly jogger, we found the precious wildflower.  I began to set up my equipment when I noticed that my brother did not seem to appreciate the value of our discovery.  Fortunately, a squirrel distracted him before he crushed the plant.Indian-pipe-step
