(Spring Beauty - 03) The early flowering spring beauty does not end with the appearance of the first blooms.  New beauties can be seen in various stages of budding from the upper left to the bottom center of this ten times actual size photo.  The flowers of the spring beauty close at night and on overcast and rainy days when insects are not flying so that its pollen will be available to propagate.  This is just another of God's wonders depicted in His creation.
