Thought I'd bring this back to the top with my latest tiny flower. I know Pete, you probably told me what these are but they are blooming again this fall. The wind was crazy today so these are not tack sharp but I wanted to post something, since I haven't in awhile.

Probably Bluets but not positive. I'm getting a few lately but haven't had a lot of time to upload anything. Best ones so far were some field mints with match head sized flowers. I'll try to get something on here before long...

Hangman - You didn't have to remove the Cardinal Flowers, that wasn't my intent. Just wanted you to be aware of the size we're looking for in the future. They could have stayed, that would be no problem.

These are very small and fuzzy and the plant it is on has leaves that look like they are made of wax. ID please?
(Flickr search says Wax flower?)

Cool one, Crewl1!

These are unknown alpine tundra flowers, that have gone past their expiration date

Found at approximately 13,000 feet up the side of Mt Evans, CO, back at hte end of September. Photo taken with K100D and 18-55 kit lens, lying on the ground at a distance of about 6 inches.

Ahhh Chickweed and Henbit, Old favorites of mine. Henbit is all over the place right now and I haven't tried to shoot any lately. I think first time I go out and find them covered in frost though...

Nice shots hangman. The chickweed (top shot) is solid white so I often try underexposing it a bit so it won't look blown out. I'm guessing you also shot a pretty wide aperture which is fine, but I usually try to shoot tiny flowers with as much depth as possible, so I go for the smallest aperture I can get by with. That helps a lot in getting the petals and center both in decent focus. I also usually try to focus on the center. If the petals go bokeh on me, oh well, I live with it...I just like the detail better.

I've got a lot of this here in South Georgia also. Wasn't sure what it was, but now I know.

This is blooming on a bush in my front yard. Not sure what it is either.

My guess is Houstonia, same family as bluets but more likely to be seen later in the year.

I was surprised to find blooming native wildflowers in central NC on New Year's Day. Normally I don't see these till sometime in February (cross-posted from the Vivitar club):



Hepatica (Liverwort)



Claytonia (Spring Beauty), just opening (stamens not unfurled yet)

I think these pass muster as tiny; both shots are 1:1 macro (uncropped), so I'd say the Hepatica is about a centimeter across, the Claytonia a little larger.
