Wildflowers

Among my other favorite subjects to photograph are wildflowers.  Delicate and beautiful they tend to be very special hiking companions as well as the insects and larger critters that share in their nourishment.  Below are a few of my favorite photographs of wildflowers.

[Note: Two very special pieces of camera equipment are vital to my work with flowers: a study tripod and a 100mm macro lens.]
