There are so many threads of all kinds of great pictures, but I don't see one for wildflowers! Show off the ones from where you live.. and if you know the names of any, please share. I admit I do NOT know wildflower names :)

These are from here in Iowa.. the first one is actually a water plant in Lake Macbride that I found blooming this past weekend.

From North Central Pennsylvania comes this beauty...a wild raspberry that grows in our deep mountains usually along the unimproved mountain roads.

Thanks, Jmorth, I didn't even look for one! I'll go check it out as I love wildflowers :)

A wild garden.. great idea..I'm assuming that you let it go to seed, so the birds can chow down! But I bet you get a lot of butterflies in it, don't you?

doc, that's some beautiful flowers.. millions? wow..

Here's one I saw in the ditch on a backroad here in Iowa

I've heard that Lake Geode State Park, which is about 20 mins away, is a good place for them (I guess that's kind of a "duh" thing! LOL) I don't look for them myself.. but I've always heard that Skunk River is good for them too.

Considering how many I see for sale at flea markets, etc.. I'd say they're all over! :) In fact, there was someone this weekend having a big sale on the rocks.

Clan...I am absolutely sure "millions" is not a big enough number for the Laurel. Laurel is solidly established in the Appalachian Mountain chain that runs from Maine to Georgia. it takes a very experienced and healthy hiker to make the trip in one hiking season. It takes seven to eight hours to drive through Pennsylvania on Rt 80 East or West.
Most of our mountains were formed and valleys cut by the ice age ice movement from the Great Lakes to the Finger Lakes. Nearly all of our present significant river flows are through the North South valleys cut by the ice.

Naturally there are Laurel seasons that vary as the ranges move between Maine to Georgia. Literally thousands of festive activities are associated with the bloom of the Laurel. There are three color phases: pink, red and white. White is the majority bloom but all three exisit in every area I have investigated. It is the Pennsylvania State Flower.

Now the bad news is Laruel is a cotton picking bad invasive weed. It is also a bad fire supporter. The wet living wood will burn. It is a fact that most mountain land managers would be happy to know how to control it. Yet it is protected by our state.

jmorth, come on down! I'll see if I can get you a more precise location for looking before you come next year..

I'll go OT a little here.. this is a geode that I found at the Bentonsport Flea Market this summer..it had been already cracked open, but it fits together still so well..

Ok, back to the topic :) Burn, I really like the swamp iris.. is it about the same size flowerhead as Siberian Iris? In your pic, it makes me think that it's a smaller flower.

Given the right conditions most wild flowers will colonize. That was the largest patch of Trillium I have seen to date.
The years have caught up with me. I wish I could still get out into the wilds and go for wild flowers. Now I have to ride a mechanical donkey of some type and be hitched to an oxygen tank. Most of the interesting trails seldom used in our mountains are game trails in State Forest controlled mountains. Mechanical devises are not permitted.

The Red Admiral is really nice. You can improve the next shot by trying filling in light with your flash or having an assistant use a pie pan or similar reflector to fill in just a little light between the wings. I really like your other photographic setting choices you chose. If you can do it try 1/500th of a second a very low f stop and an ISO 200. If you are using a simple point and shoot you have an excellent shot. It is just amazing to me the quality of images that now show up here on an hourly basis.

Thank you, jmorth, for confirming that is an aster..I thought it must be, but good to know for sure. And Goldenrod..I love that flower (flowers?), it just fills in everywhere! Here's another one of it but with a very pretty white butterfly. I didn't notice the wasp until I uploaded the pic.. a lot of color on him :)

Doc, you sure sound like you're done more than your share of camera use :) I don't know alot about this digital that I bought, just know I love using it! It's a Nikon D60 and you're right ..I just point and shoot! I've been looking at some filters on Ebay for it..think I'm going to get some for macros and even try those 2x lens that they have out there. Specially since I can't afford to buy the 300mm that I keep drooling over :)

It was the folks on DG who motivated me to get a bit beyond the elementary steps of photographic growth. Save your money and just shoot the dickens out of that D60. Read and study for yourself. I have discovered that I do not need the 300mm even for sports shooting. A 70 X 200mm f/2.8 with motion computer is so good I can crop a two inch segment out of it and still have an excellent shot. The key is f/2.8 lens quality.

There are so many lens choices out there it is mind boggling. The key is to be patient and talk and study others you like. I'm all Canon so I do not know what all choices you may have. I know there will be many and similar to what I have waded through to make a decision on. I got some help from our DG photo forum. I also went to the Canon forums where a couple of guys really helped me. This in addition to my own reading and study,
My major interest is sports photography. I am just now after three or four years upgrading my two major lenses for my Rebel XTi. The issue will always be the lens. How good do you want it to be? How good a lens can you afford? What are others you admire using?

Lets not steal this forum. D mail me and or chase me over to the photo forum.

My first close up work was done with the close up sets from Japan I believe. I had 2X, 4x, and 6X. They could be used individually or stacked right on the camera lens. Again talk and listen to others. The better quality the sharper the image will be.

Thanks for the ID on the jewelweed..this was the first time I had seen it and I fell in love with it, but of course had no clue what it was LOL..

Doc, I'll find you or dmail you :) The lens you mentioned (2x, 4x and are stackable) are exactly what I'm looking at! (But since this thread was started by me, we don't have to worry about the owner getting mad that we hijacked the thread) ^_^

Trilliums are by far my favorite wildflower, as they are one of, if not the first to break from the warming ground in the Spring, after a long cold and bitter winter.

I love the way they dot the forest floor on a good year for as far as the eye can see. Often they bloom along with the "Wild Leaks" or "Ramps" as we call them, and the delicious and gourmet "Morel Mushrooms"!! When all three are out in abundance it is a sure sign of a great Spring and Summer to come!!! ... Yum-Yum!!!

I lost the data as to whom this great image belongs. I worked on this to make it a little better for someone last year or the year before. If someone recognizes this please come in and take the credit that is due for a great image. All I did was crop, remove noise, adjust the color and sharpen it for the owner.

One of my favorite wildflowers, the Asiatic Dayflower is pretty but can be a pest if not kept in check. I pull up lots of 'em each year but always leave a few to enjoy!

Another pretty one that I'd rather see somewhere else. These Morning Glories reseed like crazy and will take over. Despite major efforts last month to pull up ALL seedlings in my yard, these have popped up. Well, there's always next year...

We have seen your fields of pretty blue Morning Glories. It sure is attractive but must drive your farmers nothing short of crazy.
