Korpella's Dogwood

Our own Bob Korpella's photograph was selected best of Plants and Fungi in the 75th Anniversary MDC photo contest.  His picture is below but this doesn't do it justice so be sure to look at page 30 in this month's Conservationist to see it and the other winners.  The story is below.



Best of Plants and Fungi - Dogwood blossom by Bob Korpella of Aurora

Korpella took this picture while hiking on private land in Barry County. “The dogwoods were almost spent, but the ones still in bloom had huge blossoms. I was intrigued by the center. It looked like a party was going on in there, so I decided to focus my attention on that portion of the blossom,” said Korpella. A Missouri Master Naturalist and Stream Team member, Korpella said one of his favorite activities is heading outside with his camera. He said he photographs in a variety of locations in both Missouri and Arkansas. “But,” he said, “it’s amazing what you can discover in your own backyard.”
