Rasmi Syamalan captured this bright splash of red at the top of Arabia Mountain in the U.S. state of Georgia, on her first hike of the year on January 25, 2020. She said:

These tiny moss-like plants – called Diamorpha – have started to show up in numerous ponds and will be fully carpeting the mountaintop with tiny flowers by spring.

Thank you, Rasmi!
