Shooting wildflowers with a big zoom lens has its challenges. One is that the higher your focal length, the more sensitive you are to movement. With flowers on long stems, you need a very quiet day to keep from having the slightest breeze move your subject. The advantage is the shallow depth of field.

Dandelion Seed

Dandelion Seed

Was going through photos and seeing what I had missed during my original selection/edit process. Came on this one. Maybe I had skipped it due to it reminding me that I had weeding to do? Glad I went back and reviewed images from the past. It’s a good practice.

I enjoy the flowers that struggle to grow in rugged, rocky dry places or deep in the woods. Stonecrop and Pinesap are that kind of plant. Stonecrop growing in the dry, rocky alpine slopes of the Olympic Mountains and Pinesap growing in the woods, living without chlorophyll.

Along the Grand Ridge trail west of Deer Park in the Olympic National Park. Tiger Lilies are a late summer blooming species. Of course, at over 5000′, winter lasts a long time and summer comes late.
