Pickerel Weed

Granby Council on Aging/Senior Center, 10 West State Street, Granby

Photograph and text by Anne E. Ely, South Hadley,

There is a small body of water near the back of the Granby Senior Center which I check frequently for ducks, etc. The water was low in August when I found this Pickerel Weed growing there. I didn’t notice until I got home that a bumblebee was visiting one of the blossoms. I captured this image out my car window with a hand held DSLR camera and a medium length telephoto lens.
