South Carolina’s Tom Yawkey Wildlife Center is composed of 31 square miles on two barrier islands and include some open fields where these wildflowers were blooming earlier this month.
The field was surrounded by a wet ditch so I didn’t get real close, but a few plants were growing on edge of the dirt roadway.
It was very breezy that day and only a few tenacious insects were flying around. This was good for keeping mosquitoes away but not so good for photographing bouncing blossoms.
An unknown caterpillar was munching his way to the top of this plant.
