Nice shot, Ell', bold composition too...X

Did someone say Hart Prairie Road??? Awwww.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: YUP! Named for you, no doubt... one of my favorite mountain drives!

This is wonderful, love the DOF and the colours, what a delightful flower.
I agree on the courage quote...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Astrid! It is one of my favorite mountain wildflowers!
A very good quote, yes... and tomorrow - I get up and try again! smile

An amazing colour scheme!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it lovely? One of our native wildflowers. Depending on the soil it's growing in, it can be fire engine read, soft pink or almost orangish...

I am pleased you have another seven to go, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so glad you're liking these! You would love Arizona I think, Lisl - we are second only to the Florida Everglades for diversity of wildlife, and variety of native plants in North America.
I like the composition E but I could wish the flower a little sharper.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I perhaps should have used a different aperture - it seems the camera focused on the top petal...
A star is born...Wonderful Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: One of my favorites! Thank you Richard!
The pattern on this flower is superb Elizabeth, a great series.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it lovely?! Thank you!

Beautiful, Elizabeth. I'll look forward to the rest of them.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Pauline!! I hope they'll live up to your expectations!
A lovely speckled specimen isn't it. Nice shot Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: One of my favorites, Janet! Thank you!
That a pretty flower that is. Would look good in a mixed pot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it just?! I've tried to grow them - they don't like to be told what to do. I only find them growing wild in the mountains!
delicate little flower
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it?!
A fine flower shot Elizabeth, you've got so much depth from front to back.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Brian! As I told Bill - I perhaps should have used a different aperture - it seems the camera focused on the top petal...
charming shot. i like the tiny patterns
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you! Aren't speckles wonderful in the wild?!

That;s a very preety flower. Not quite King of the Mountain jersey colours in the Tour de France (guess what I'm watching on TV?) but near enough.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it pretty?! One of my favorite wildflowers!
I take it you've been watching a little bicycle race?! smile

Great shot. Never seen one of these before - looks a lot like an orchid.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Louis! One of my favorite wildflowers... I see what you mean about the orchid - these tend to droop a bit and are typically more symmetrical!
It's a flower with measles.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh dear!
