I have just returned from three days and two nights in glorious Glacier National Park. To my delight the days were warm, skies were blue with clouds of white. Waterfalls flowing, lakes massive and flowers colored the earth in glory! Seriously, every color of flower and so so many! Nights were cool with a full moon traveling through the sky.
There is one flower that I saw two years ago and when I took it's portrait I did not do it justice. I have been waiting to find it in my wanderings ever since. It is very tiny and something about the cone like center against the petals and polka dots that makes this little creature a challenge to shoot in focus.
I came across this little beauty, just one patch of it this trip. The wind was blowing, I don't use a tripod, macro lens is heavy = all shots might be out of focus. To my delight I love the images I took of the fanciful little Spotted Saxifrage.
