About the Photo:
Tamaracks (also known as Larch) are the only deciduous conifers that grow in our region. They favor damp soils and their needles turn a lovely yellow in fall before dropping. This tree is in our front field and is one of two I planted there last spring having gotten them from a neighbor. I love the soft, feathery quality of the needles at this phase of their growth. I took the shot using my trusty 105mm macro, ISO 400, f/20, 1/100 sec shutter.
