Poison Ivy at Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge

I may be one of the only people to have photographed Poison Ivy at Ding Darling.  

At major nature preserves, like national parks and BIG national wildlife refuges where people can drive through, they're always stopping cars to ask what someone is looking at by the side of the road.  At Yellowstone, it was people looking for bears and big mammals.  At Ding Darling, it's folks looking for big birds and alligators.

I was standing by the road photographing this particular plant, along with some Mangrove leaves.  I was attracted to the colors of the leaves.  While I'm standing there shooting away, a van full of at least 5 or 6 people stopped beside me and asked what I had.  I said, "I just like to take pictures of Poison Ivy."  They were dumbfounded and then started to laugh.

One act of random kindness per day.  That's what I'm all about. 

I hope they told all their friends about that dopey photographer who was taking pictures of PIV. 

And here's my collection.

And no, I've never had a reaction.
