A capture of some “Spotted Joe Pye Weed” found on the banks of the Grand River near Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Taken in summer.

Here’s a detailed description of this species:
“Spotted Joe Pye Weed” (Eutrochium/Eupatorium Maculatum) is a member of the Asteraceae family. E. maculatum ranges from Alberta east to the Atlantic and Newfoundland and as far north as Quebec and south to Kentucky.

Spotted Joe-Pye Weed thrives in marshes, rich fens and swamps. It also does well in man made moist expanses such as ditches, seepage areas and wet fields. Above all else the plant flourishes in the non-shaded environments that are so abundant in wetlands.

Growing up with photography and art in his family, he was self-taught ever since he developed his own films at the age of 13. “I do it for the sheer joy of creating an image regardless of whether it pleases, stuns or provokes”, he says. He likes to experiment and is currently exploring pinhole, Infra-red, panoramic, and high dynamic range photography.
