On Labor Day while our Dan River kayaking and tubing adventure I took photos of one of my favorite wildflowers -- the Spotted Jewelweed or Impatiens Capensis.

"The seed pods are pendant and have projectile seeds that explode out of the pods when they are lightly touched, if ripe, which is where the name 'touch-me-not' comes from."

The photos of the Spotted Jewelweed were taken from my kayak, at river's edge, often moving with the river's current.

How about those colors?!?!?
