Starflowerpower

A tiny fresh starflower for Wildflower Wednesday These flowers are tiny, barely bigger than your fingernail. If you want to see one closeup, check out a recent lovely photo taken by @tidelinetoalpine

I’ve tried for years to get a good photo of these diminutive flowers, and mostly failed as they are tiny and difficult to get close to. To make things harder, they’re forest flowers and often deep in shady areas, meaning that the exposure times are really too long for handheld shots. I should have used a tripod instead of trying to hold still while crouching down on my knees. However, I can say that I have succeeded in getting one or two photos that I’m quite happy with, and I was especially pleased with this one as it captures a flower just opening out. I’ve never seen one at this early stage before, so it was a double treat ๐Ÿ™‚
