Good heavens! I have never seen these plants before. They are astonishing -- fleshy, undersea creatures -- and they even look smelly.Great photos. I love the internal detail and form.
Aren't they something else? I am still amazed that I've never seen these before... in the very yard where I grew up, traipsing through swamp year after year.
You have captured quite a fantastic plant! I have so many of them in my valley in the woods. They are my harbinger of spring...great pics!
