I have never seen such an incredible display of wildflowers as we have "going on" this year.   I think the best place to see them is at Chimney Rock at Point Reyes, and on Saturday I headed out there early, because I knew the motion-inducing breeze would be increasing as the day progressed.   The morning couldn't have been nicer -- usually it is cold and foggy out at that isolated spot -- but the wildflowers seem to thrive in the harsh conditions.

These are just gorgeous! My favorite is the one on the right, with the dusting of pollen so clearly visible, and the shaggy "rooster's comb" standing out above. Beautiful!

Wanted to thank everybody on their nice comments -- it fuels my tank... And of course I can't take all the credit for the wildflowers -- they did most of the work!

Beautiful velvet textures. I especially liked it in the enlarged shot the other day. Vivid color really makes the picture.
