A NZ ground orchid. Pic taken this morning on daily dog walk. These are only about 10mm in length. Very beautiful, very delicate.
In cam focus stack, with the oly 30 macro.

A sweet little rambling blue-lilac pea flower, possibly Hovea species, native Australian.

Another Hike at Altitude

Went for another hike, this time into the West Elk Mountains via the Rainbow lake trail. Parking lot is at 11,000 ft. I used the old Olympus 35mm 4/3 macro lens on the G9 for all photos. I used both standard and high resolution mod 2 settings. I used a Gitzo Traveler1 with the center column removed for all photos. The main problem I had with the High Res mode was movement of the flowers. With one possible exception, there was no difference in a use case such as this. I decided to post only the high res photos for basically no good reason. First off a photo of a small stream that crosses the trail

This was at f10 still not enough to give good depth of field

The most abundant wildflower in bloom at this time was the Serrated Ragwort

Also a lovely member of the phlox family Polemonium pulcherrimum, Beautiful Jacob's Ladder.

Parrots Beak (which I have posted before) has a complex flower structure that can barely be understood by viewing let alone by trying to describe it.

Rocky Mountain Clover is a lovely member of the pea family.

Another composite, the Nodding Ragwort is also frequently seen.

The flower that makes the walk a success, the wood nymph, a member of the heath family. this blossom is an inch across or less. this tiny plant is completely charming

And now I give you a mystery. I have never seen this plant before. the closest I can come is the Western Labrador Tea which is a Rhododendron usually seen as a small shrub. Here it is a very small plant with 2 tiny blossoms. any help on ID would be appreciated.

Next I cropped the 80 megapixel image to 1600 on the long side to give the viewer a 100% magnification.

I then took the 20 megapixel photo and cropped it to match the image size of the above.

Clearly the 80 mp image is superior to the 20 mp image in this image

No idea what this is but it looks like that they do. It was growing on a river bank.

Another not sure what it is. I have a shortlist of genera but keep getting confounded on species IDs due to references not convincingly matching the actual plant. 270 stack, 2.2x.

Sundews are not quite flowering yet. But I think they’re weird enough for a pic.
