I've posted photos of Camas before but as well as being a beautiful spring flower it is so historically significant here that I have to post a photo of it every time this season comes around. The bulbs of this plant were an important source of food for the native peoples here and throughout the northwest and the local name for this area long before James Douglas built Fort Victoria here was Camosun or Place of Camas.

They are beautiful.
This shot offers something of a study in composition regarding background and how it affects overall depth presentation. Here it shows greater distance and identifies the subject as in a more pronounced foreground versus a 'flatter'view.
