Like this sunshiny little guy for instance. Don't let his pretty face fool you though. His leaves reminded me of Venus flytraps, with tiny spikes emerging from the edges. I believe it's a camphorweed.
Apparently my camera lens is superior to my eyesight, because I had no idea that this particular flower had a tiny web spun around it until I uploaded the photos. Do you see it?
One of my favorite wildflowers is the thistle. They seem so bright and exotic to me, like they should be growing on a tropical island somewhere. Yet they grow like crazy right here in Oklahoma.
This dude found a cozy place to rest on top of a fluffy purple bud.
These were all taken at my dad's pond last week. I didn't get to take any photos of the Indian Paintbrushes in my area this year. The only ones I saw were on the side of the road, and while I have been known to pull over my car and get out for a good photo, I try not to do it very often. ;-)
What kind of flowers grow wild where you live? Which are your favorites?
