Wabash River at Lafayette in May, Elderberry

The river is at a slight flood stage, in this picture the water level is beginning to recede.

These elderberry shrubs (Sambucus canadensis) are just a bit higher than the flooded river. The flowering heads of the elderberry are at the bud stage, they will be flowering in June very soon. On the east bank looking down from the pedestrian bridge. Pictures taken May 23, 2010.
