We again saw lots of wildflowers on our trip to Yosemite this year. And I had a new digital camera which has macro mode...so I could get some ultra close-ups. :-)
I don't necessarily believe that this is the best way to showcase the pictures, but it's what I've come up with so far. They are in mostly alphabetical order...I hope you will enjoy them.
Oh, by the way, a lot of these flowers are much smaller in real life!
So here's my disclaimer:
"Objects on screen may be smaller than they appear". :-)
|Alpine lily||Alumroot||Wild azalea|
|Bleeding Heart||Blue dicks||Unknown blue flowers|
|Blue-eyed Mary||Buckwheat||Bush cinquefoil|
|More chickweed||Cinquefoil||More cinquefoil|
|Still more cinquefoil||Dudley's Clarkia
(named after William Clark,
as in Lewis & Clark)
|Dandelion||Deer brush and butterfly||Draperia|
|Harlequin lupine||More Harlequin lupine||Hyacinth brodiaea - popular with butterflies!|
|Indian pink||Wild iris||Lady's slipper orchid
(unfortunately already past its prime this year)
|Lewisia - named after the other
member of the Lewis & Clark expedition
|Lotus||Little white flower
(shown larger than actual size)
