A tiny ground-hugging woodland early spring wildflower. Taken with the Composer, soft-focus optic at f/5.6, and +10 Macro. Texture added. B&W as well as color versions to satisfy your taste. Have a great week! Thanks for looking.

Happy Spring Rich, lovely shots. How can such a pretty flower have a name like Blood root. I think I like the B&w in this case. Nice work.tony.

Tony -- "A break in the surface of the plant, especially the roots, reveals a reddish sap" -- thus the name bloodroot. The sap can also be toxic.

Rich, very nice shot. I can not decide which one I like better (B&W or color).

I hadn't thought of these being in bloom yet Rich. There is a large conservation area about a mile from where I work that has these flowers. I'll have to check tomorrow after my shift.

I love the very subtle texture you've added to these. Knowing how tiny these flowers are...I'm guessing you had to lie on the ground to make this photo :) Well done.

Brian,

You are absolutely right. I was lying flat on the ground with the base of the camera not more than an inch from the ground. I put the right-angle viewer onto the camera view finder in order to get the exact angle I wanted without getting a permanent kink in my neck.

Thanks for commenting.

Very nice work, Rich, well, for my taste the textures are not needed, but that's just me, it seems that's really 'en vogue'. Anyway, beautiful images, for me the b&w is the fave! Cheers!

Codrin,

Thanks for your comments. I very seldom use textures, and when I do, they are always extremely subtle, as in this image.
