No idea what flower this is, and the picture quality is not the best because I was messing about with the camera to see how well it could handle noise at 1600 ISO.

Hard to tell from the camera angle and lack of information about stem structure. But, from the petals and stamens and apparently opposite odd-pinnate compound leaves with serrate leaflets, maybe try starting with wild Rosa species of your area. Particularly if the stems have prickles.

Opening flower and bud of slender phlox (Microsteris gracilis), I think. 180 stack at 3.3x and 219 stack at 3x.

A Drive in the West Elk Mountains
My wife and I went for a drive on a just opened road in the West elks today I started taking photos at about 8,700 ft. and topped out at about 10,100 ft. I will show the flowers by altitude. At 8700 the Mule Ears and Sticky Geraniums were just starting.

Just a little higher up the Heart-leaf Bittercress, and Red Elderberry were blooming

At the top of the pass there was still snow across the road in places. Several of my favorite flowers were putting on a show, including Valley Violets,

This was a busy couple of weeks for new blooms!

Some of the first new ones I noticed were Pinkladies. Both white and pink varieties flourish here on the side of the road.

Since then, it’s been a sea of pink as the Crownvetch used to stabilize roadsides started to bloom.

While I’d seen thistle before, I’d never seen anything like the musk thistle. The largest flower head I’ve seen so far was the size of an apple!

One flower I was totally surprised by was the Cinquefoil. The heart shaped flower petals are super cool and the color is just so unique.

St. John’s Wart is a common flower many places, but it’s always a nice one to see

Of all the wildflower pictures in this run, this one is my favorite. This Lance-Leafed Coreopsis was in the perfect spot for a lone sunbeam to hit it in a dense woodland.

These Ruelia look all the world to me like a showy morning glory, so I always love seeing them covered in dew at dawn.

Chicory isn’t found where I’m from, so when I saw these flowers I was blown away. By far my favorite color flower I’ve seen so far.

And finally, these Deptford Pinks was in a clump on the side of the road, and I’d not have been able to photograph it without picking one. They’re tiny! And the wind was blowing all over the place.

Great photos sir.

As an aside, is there a convention for putting descriptions either before or after the photo, I wonder?
Not a criticism, but I prefer one before and just got slightly confused with yours being at the end and so close to the following photo.

It's probably just me though. :rolleyes:

That’s a great question, I’ve not seen a style guide for the forum. I just put them after because the EXIF data is also after, but never really gave it much thought otherwise. Thanks though! I do wildlife posts every day so I accumulate quite a few flower photos!
