A Day at the Lake

This past weekend I went kayaking on Forest Lake.  I paddled around to the other side of the lake where there is a stream that feeds the lake.  As I began paddling up the stream I noticed these small flowers growing very abundantly along both sides.   I only had my small camera that doesn’t do macro near as well as my Rebel, so I broke my #1 rule and took some of the flowers home.  I put them in a vase and photographed them out on my deck.  I know, I cheated….but I couldn’t help it, these flowers are so beautiful, and I just had to share them.  The flowers of both species here are only 1/4 inch long.  They look huge in the pics, but are really quite small.IMG_0464
