Seeing a Jack-In-The-Pulpit in the spring is a real treat. They tend to grow in out of the way places, often blending in with the green foliage of other plants nearby. But once you have found one, it will most likely reappear in the same spot year after year.
I had been searching for one in an area where I had seen them before, but no luck. But a friend I was traveling with (thank you Dee!) spotted this one growing in the deep shade next to a rock.
The light was very soft, with most of the light coming from behind the plant, but it is hard to tell in this original RAW file.
