Vote for the August Photo-observation of the Month

The spring ephemerals are long gone, but for the curious observer there is still plenty of interesting plant life to record for iNaturalist Vermont, a project of the Vermont Atlas of Life. Whether it's a late blossom, interesting foliage or seeds or fruit for future years - you can still get out and enjoy green plants. To celebrate our wonderful plants and your observations, Sue Elliot, July's winner, chose 6 wonderful photo-observations from August for all of us to select the grand prize August winner. Please comment indicating the number of your favorite shot.
