Actaea pachypoda – Doll’s eyes

The actaea pachypoda is a herbaceous perennial plant with white flowers and fruits (shown above) that resemble doll’s eyes – hence the common name.

I took this shot at the Koffler Scientific Resere, north of Toronto, while helping my son collect ants two summers ago.

Right now, Kyle is in Peru, collecting ants and doing other research. I’d love to be there taking photos and helping him out anyway I can.
