6 mm
« on: July 06, 2015, 02:26:04 am »

I'm not sure of the name of these tiny flowers, but they are about 6 mm in diameter, and managed to insinuate themselves into the view of a macro lens.

I presume they are US (Northwestern?) - what was the local habitat: meadow, woodland, mountainside, garden?

Very nice interplay of colours and "fuzziness".

Exquisitely soft and quiet.
I love this.

Really lovely! Yellow background is also interesting contrast.

Concerning identification, when I have a nice macro of a flower that I don't recognize, I usually remember to also photograph the whole plant, so that I get a view of leaves (size? shape?), pattern of leaves on stem (opposite? alternate?), position of flower on stem (terminal? side shoots?) - and take a note of what type of habitat it comes from (limestone glade? deep soil prairie? woodland edge? streamside?). Then I have enough information to consult regional or local wildflower identification websites. I also bought a basic book on wildflowers of Missouri, not comprehensive, but has a handy pictorial glossary of botanical terms.

Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and constructive suggestions. I've learned that the tiny flowers are a species of Gypsophila. The yellow background that some of you mentioned is another much larger flower.
