    • I wish. But Montana’s a big state and I can’t get to all of it. So far I’ve identified a little over 200 species in the small area (about 2,000 square miles) in which I roam.

  4. Love that colour! Had to laugh at myself because I thought it was going to be a picture of a bird. (Stork’s bill).

  9. A quarter-inch across? My goodness. It’s amazing that the can pack that much detail into such a tiny flower. Are those its leaves surrounding it? They’re as interesting as the flower. They look thicker and heavier than the bloom, by far.

    • The leaves are very pretty all by themselves. They are such a pleasant deep green with beautiful texture.

  10. Very pretty. I don’t quite see a heron’s bill but that’s okay.

    • I don’t see it either. The people who name things sometimes stretch further than I can to make a name fit.

  11. What a lovely sign of Spring. Nice shot too.
    Reminds me of our Cranesbill Geranium. I wonder if they’re related in any way.

    • I have not for several years, other than a few tomatoes. Nearly all of my flower pictures are taken in the wild, usually the National Forests.

    • I agree. It’s a very pretty little flower. So small though.

    • Thanks! Well, it stayed very still for me and I have also devised a sort of tripod with an adjustable head and 4 inch legs that gives me a steady shot (usually with my mustache in the dirt).
