photographing and learning about wildlife
A rather prolific "weed"/wildflower that I see in many parks in the area. These were growing en masse near the banks of the C&O Canal near the C&O Canal Visitor's Center, and are in a stage of mostly blooming. The dried stems smell sweet when crushed and exhibit a very geometric arrangement of pairs up the stem.
Grassy areas of a park, also in the forested areas
