Lots of great flowers here. Bill, I love those club moss and the touch-me-not (aka jewelweed) is fabulous. I was shooting them this last week or so also, as they are at the end of their season here. These were photographed in the rain:

Found an ID for this which we'd all been puzzling over earlier in this thread:



Thanks to Rense, who posted a photo of a similar plant in his thread Today's Hike with the Helios-44k-4, I can now say it's probably Fallopia japonica, Japanese knotweed. Some people around here have been calling it bamboo shrub because the stems are hollow.

Just a side note about the red flower in my earlier post with the Lantana Camara. I didn't hit it with a saturation stick, it is the actual photo using an 18-55mm DA.

Matt those look a lot like either Daisies or Asters. Both are blooming here in the south right now....

I'm amazed this has gone this far, never expected it to be still going. Some great shots showing up too.

I got a couple this weekend. Each of these is about 1/4 inch across, called Blazing Stars I think.

These are about 1/8 inch, no idea what they are...

Don't ya know, Bill, the more you find the more there is to shoot.

I went out today though and found nothing. My nephew has mowed the yard again.

Not a flower, but really neat looking to me. I've never seen them with the dark brown pods (?). SMC-K 135/2.5 at f/8 with 13,21, and 31mm tubes.

Finally I can contribute one flower which I know nothing of. Had to hold it but didn't pull it out.

Hi georg, as I was saying,"someone hangs another beauty"
I've been thinking of adding some sort of 'holding apparatus' to my kit
to do what you're handholding, ever try anything like that?
need something for windy days

Nice little flower Georg.

I was out this afternoon. The wind finally died down a bit and I sat on the ground near my Lantanas and found the little itty bitty flower below:

Here's a couple more...

These are all "itty bittys" but I only know the name of the first one. (two photos) It is a "Polka Dot Plant" alias- "Hypoestes ssp." We have it on the front porch and were kinda surprised by the flowers. The other 3 are growing in the neighborhood but I don't know they're names and the folks were not around to ask.

It's spring here in the southern hemisphere, and for the first time since the mid nineties we have had winter rains that we used get for the last century. All around the parched forests have been springing back to life, watercourses dry for a decade once again have water and life.

The forests here full of tiny flowers, the area some 300 species of orchids, mostly tiny. To set the scene, I found an area of orchids known as greenhoods, carpeting the forest floor. For the last ten years it would have been noteworthy to find a clump of fifty. This year is different.

In amongst the vast carpets of greenhoods, small lilies reach for the sun.

This is just the first flush of orchids, the coming months will see scores more erupt. Happy to post a few more if you are interested. All of these were shot with a DA14mm in very close focus mode!

The area has had quite some fire put through it over the last three years. many of the orchids only flower after fire, so that and the rains have made a real treat for tiny flower fanciers! So much so I'm off out on Friday to get some reference photographs of an orchid seen for the first time since 1983.
