Pete - that's it - yellow wood sorrel. I imagine you've got wildflowers galore there in Lufkin. Same here - I guess conditions were favorable this winter/spring. We have a bumper crop of bluebonnets as well. Your photos are great!

These have appeared all over my lawn. It's hard to see them with the naked eye, amazing to know what I am stepping on.
First a shot with my shoe in the pic to gauge the size, the second is with a Cosina 100mm lens on stacked TC's and tubes for about 80mm of extension.

My wife's little potted cactus finally bloomed for the first time in 5 years!

Crewl1 - Those are called Speedwell. I've seen two varieties, the larger one is called Birdseye Speedwell, about 1.2 inch across, those are identical but really tiny. The smaller ones around here are a little under 1/4 inch across, looks like that's what you got shots of. They would almost fit inside the "O" on that key on my keyboard.

Thanks for the ID pete! "Speedwell" cool
This afternoon I tried a 28mm reversed on the tubes to try and get a closer look and found some little bugs eating them for dinner.
The pictures aren't any good as my macro skills are weak. but if I get better shots I will post them somewhere.

Once this opens up, it's a little bigger, but for now

Thanks, conditions were right, not too windy, some nice daylight, and dry enough to get down on the ground without getting wet and muddy.

Indeed. #1 is Spring Beauty (Claytonia), a flower I never tire of. (I don't know what #2 is.)

Here are a couple from this morning.


False Solomon's Seal


Foamflower

Both of these were shot with the Bokina on extension, about 1.4:1 magnification. The False Solomon's Seal shot is cropped; the cluster at bottom is probably about 7mm across. The Foamflower is an uncropped focus stack from 7 images. (I should have taken more; there are noticeable artifacts from the stacking software.)

Got another today. One that I've never seen in my yard but found this one while shooting for Single in April. It looks big, but it's not. It isn't even as big as a dime. This was shot with my homemade macro rig.



Ivoire, how tiny are your flowers?
