Record of March Colors Found at Tama River - Various Flowers Tell the Arrival of Spring

Ume Tree at Tama River

Now, we are in the midst of March. I'm at Tama River again to see the colors of this month.

Record of February Colors Found at Tama River - Difference of Japanese Pampas Grass and Phragmites

It is quite interesting to walk along the river because I can see various flowers, some of which look uncommon. Look at the photo above. I couldn't believe what I saw at the first place because this sphere-shaped wood is, indeed, a Ume tree.

 

Ume Blossoms at Tama River

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/9, 1/60 sec, ISO-400)

Many of the white blossoms were already withering, but some looked well-arranged like the photo above. This is why Tama River is worth walking along every month.

 

Japanese wild radish at Tama River

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/16, 1/60 sec, ISO-1250)

I love to see the flower of Japanese wild radish in the sunset time because the blossoms added the warm purple color to the riverside. Japanese wild radish will be blooming to enjoy people until June.

 

Lepidium virginicum at Tama River

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5.6, 1/40 sec, ISO-320)

Here's the Lepidium virginicum. It is quite difficult to shoot because the blossoms were tiny and white. The point was to find a position where the flower have an empty space backwards. This is very important to give strong presence to the tiny flower by giving bokeh effect to the background.

 

Lamium amplexicaule at Tama River

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/9, 1/6 sec, ISO-100)

After enjoying the Lepidium virginicum, I confronted Lamium amplexicaule. I spent about 20 minutes to get the clearest image of this tiny purple flower. It made me feel again that flowers look beautiful in the sunset time.

 

Wild Cat at Tama River

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (200mm, f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO-400)

By the way, I found one black-and-white wild cat on the fresh green grass. It looked quite cautious, eh?

 

Sunset from Riverside of Tama River

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (109mm, f/8, 1/200 sec, ISO-100)

The last photo is the orange sunset from the riverside. This is how I ended the discovery of the colors in March. I hope to see more flowers soon!
