Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Spring Shower Dogwood” by Jeff Sullivan. Location: Yosemite National Park, California.
“I caught this dogwood ‘flower’ as a spring shower was tapering off in intensity,” explains Sullivan. “What appears to be the ‘petals’ of a dogwood blossom are actually leaves, which don’t have enough chlorophyll to appear green. That’s why you can commonly find them with four, five or six white ‘petals’—the tiny flowers are actually in the buds in the center.”
