It's the time of year to go to Governor Nelson State Park and see the Dutchman's breeches.

    "Dutchman's breeches is one of many plants whose seeds are spread by ants, a process called myrmecochory. The ants take the seeds to their nest, where they eat the elaiosomes, and put the seeds in their nest debris, where they are protected until they germinate. They also get the added bonus of growing in a medium made richer by the ant nest debris." "Governor Nelson State Park is a 422-acre Wisconsin state park... on the north shore of Lake Mendota. It is named for former Wisconsin Gov...

In 19 months of chasing the sunrise, today's was the #1 best.

I gave you some unretouched photos earlier today — here — but let me give you a few more. These are modestly tweaked in Apple's Photos — basically just moving the "Light" slider a bit to the left. The lake has been melting and cracking up, and wind/waves are driving shards of ice to pile up on the shore. This is 7:02, the earliest shot, which makes me wish I'd gotten out 10 minutes earlier.   What a broiler! This was the scene at 7:04, with the shoreline ice looking cobalt blue.  7:05, fram...

The sky over Lake Mendota at 7:02 this morning — straight out of the iPhone, no color or light adjustments.

 All I did was level the horizon slightly. I was going to take this morning off from my usual sunrise run, but I could see the color developing very intensely and darted out at the last minute. Sunrise wasn't until 7:10, and by 7:10 the color was quite faded, into a sunrise that I'd have judged to be in the middling range of the sunrises I've seen since beginning my sunrise run series in September 2019. I got to my vantage point and got these pictures at 7:02, so you see it's crucial to get ...

At the Big Crack Café...

 ... you can talk all night. This morning the snow was gone and the ice on Lake Mendota had a massive crack. It was overcast, and the sunrise looked like this: [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]
