Similar to what we have in Ohio.

I thought you might have something similar there.

Great macro shot. I can see the pollen on the petals.

this is the first I’ve seen so far this spring. There will be many more blooming soon.

I never managed to capture an image of them with such clarity, but we had these in the Wasatch Mountains, also…in purple and white. Beautiful, Terry.

Yes, this species seems to be pretty common across the west.
Such a sharp photo of a beautiful flower. Lovely details of the pollen and stamen. It’s popping out from my screen and I feel like I could touch it!

They really are beautiful flowers. I’m glad that you enjoyed seeing it!

Such a wonderful bit of beauty to bring the weekend to a close…Well done.

They sure bring a bright color to the landscape, don’t they!

Wow, that’s bright! We have a similar wild geranium here, but maybe not quite so vivid! Great photo.

Until the last year, we always had lousy luck growing domestic Geraniums, but luckily there are lots of wild ones around!

What a great shot.
Very crisp focus indeed.

Thanks Vicki. That’s a very photogenic flower!
Excellent shot of a beautiful little flower!

They are one of the brightest ones in the forest!

What a beautiful color. And I suspect the common name “sticky geranium” is somehow related to the “viscosissimum” in the scientific name. As I recall, viscous fluids can be thick and sticky. The pollen surely seems glued on.

That could well be, or the name could have come from the sharp-looking hairs on the stems and leaves. I just love that color!

“Wild Geranium,” sounds like an appellation given to a backwoods wildchild. Beautiful.
Comment by Teresa Evangeline — May 5, 2015 @ 6:01 am
I could see that! It would be a compliment too.

Yes, it’s one of the most vivid of the wildflower colors.
Comment by montucky — May 7, 2015 @ 8:25 pm
This gorgeous! I love it.

This was the first of their blooms that I saw this year. Since, many more have been in bloom and we will continue to see them for some time still.
