oh and another one !! and I love the beautiful flower ! very cool pic and look at those colours - wow - I wish we had these flowers here

Mother Nature replied:

Gentians used to be common, found in almost every wetland area around, but building, roads, over-picking (you name it) and a lack of knowledge are causing it to disappear along with other gentian types. Fringes gentians are lovely - haven't found one in over ten years. There is a chance you might have some in a wetland area that is not overly traveled.

Mother Nature replied:

PS: I've seen photos taken in Ottawa:>)

Crab Spider On Closed Gentian Wildflower - Gentiana Andrewsii


Mother Nature


Photograph - Photograph


This is a lovely wildflower that intrigues me. It never opens up, always looks like a bud, and I watch the bumblebees crawl into the flower and disappear then crawl back out.

Closed Gentians are native to North America, especially in our Northeastern corridor, and bloom in late summer. Here we see them in late August and early September. This picture was taken August 24, 2012, at Green Lane Reservoir in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, USA.

These plants are considered "threatened" in the states of New York and Maryland. Although I can find them in Pennsylvania, it does take some looking. If you find some please don't pick them.

For a bit more info you can visit:

The crab spider seems to have found a good hiding place to wait for unsuspecting bugs.
