    I know I have an addiction to flower photography. Anyone Else have this Problem? Lol. I love seeing some nice Close Up photography of anything though, So feel free to share your wonderfully Detailed Macro-Photography (I believe that's the name for the highly detailed close ups... Lol.) Here's some of mine! :)

    Well how fun! You have some very nice pictures, TommyDaDelaware! Nice job! Love how you use the Latin name for correct and absolute identification. :)

    Some of these I took, the rest my husband. We are very much into the native plants in our area. We even have our very own website dedicated to plant identification in our area! Wahoo!

    Thanks for starting a nice thread!

    Wow, what a very interesting looking fruit. We have Astragalus around here, but not that species.

    In fact, it looks like we have a lot of the same plants in our neck of the woods. Opuntia, Ipomopsis, Sego Lily, Bistorta. Cool!

    yeah. Well most of my wildflower pictures have been taken when I visit my Grandma in Central Wyoming. Here In WI we don't have the Sego Lily or Bistorts. But apparently we do have a species of Indian Paintbrush.
