    Yes this throw down is back again for another run, I recently spent a weekend laying on the ground shooting the 46 varieties of mountain flowers we came across with a couple of vintage lenses, here are a couple to get things started.

      Some good Bugs seem to be sneaking in with the Buds, nice Graham.

      Nice shot, especially against the Bokeh.

      Really nice and soft bokeh, it fits the image perfectly!

      That brings back a few childhood memories, they don’t grow up here.

        Unfortunately this one is not thriving right now. Some kind of disease or insect infestation or ?  But glad it stirred up a memory or two for you.  🙂

    Well since some one got it going a bit in this direction.

      I really like the angle of view you chose Robert. Shooting from a low angle, showing all that sky in the background does a fantastic job of giving us a bugs eye view of their world. Nicely done.

      Beautiful Diane. Inevitably you find yourself shooting bugs when shooting flowers. I love the ones that I don’t see until later.

      Is this the same one you posted earlier except with petals this time?

        Not exactly the same flower. In the same bunch though.

          It’s a nice life cycle theme you have going so far anyways.  I hope to see a withered one

      Nice Dave, the symmetry of some flowers is amazing.

        “the symmetry of some flowers is amazing.”

        I agree.

    Random Wildflower (if anyone knows what it is, let me know)

      Don’t know what the flower is but the background looks great and makes the subject stand out. Nicely done Preston.

        Thanks Dave.  I went a bit aggressive on the sharpening, but I think it did the flower some justice.

      Nice shot Preston, I hate posts like this though because then I get obsessed and have to figure out what it is, turns out it is a invasive species of lotus originally from Eurasia and North Africa called Birdsfoot Trefoil. click the name for more.

        Robert, you beat me to it, I knew the name, but had no idea they are related to the lotus! It grows in my garden, and pretty much most places round here,

        Sorry Robert.  I’m the same way about these posts, but when I researched “Yellow Pennsylvania Wildflower” all I got were snapdragons and buttercups.  Thanks for the link and identification!  It makes sense now that I see a lot of it since I walk old pastures and it was used for livestock forage (more resilient than alfalfa apparently).

    Speaking of invasive species. Here’s another. Teasel.

      I am actually partial to the thistles and cactus, those plants they based medieval weaponry on. Imagine a Steel version of the plant.
