looking around for Wildflowers

I suppose this photo needs some explaining -- I wouldn't want anyone to think that I had pulled-apart and destroyed a beautiful Douglas Iris.   The photo had a very busy background, so I darkened it -- some of the darkness extended to the area where the petals were attached, thus the "hanging in space" or "exploded" effect.

Ever since my buddy in Ohio mentioned he was interested in Calla Lilies I just can't seem to get enough of them.   Some are left-over from last year -- just a bit tattered from the storms.   And some are new and bright, like this happy example.

I've shown other examples of Montbretia recently.   It's another contender in the "my favorite wildflower" competition.

Indian Paintbrush -- and yes, we even have Indian Paintbrush -- the wildflower with the very imaginative name.   Can you spot the bug?

Glad you gave an explaination. It makes for explosive photography.
I love the ivory, creamy quality of the Calla.

Great series! As to the Douglas Iris, I would have called it "meditating" because that's how I imagine you must feel when you meditate.
