Small yellow cluster of flowers with green vegetation.
Spotted on a trail leading to a swamp. Moist soil and dappled shade between the road and waters' edge. There are mainly hardwood trees that surround this area and Cyprus trees in the swampy waters.
I veered off the dirt road onto what looked like an animal trail and was rewarded with a small patch of these beautiful yellow flowers and then a remarkable Barred Owl, not 25 feet off in a Cyprus tree. Delightful!
