Yosemite Wildflowers

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". :-)
