Photographer's Note

Western Skunk Cabbage (Lysichiton americanus) blooms in the swamps of the Pacific Northwest for a brief period in the early spring.

Its great to catch them when the unusual flowers are fairly new. Over the summer these will grow huge leaves, some almost 1 meter across, then they start all over the next spring.

This was taken near Victoria, BC in Thetis Lake Park. The Victoria area hosts many "natural" parks close to downtown.
