While walking on the Southfork trail along the Bonito Creek yesterday there were a few of this unusual flowing plant in shady rich loamy soil. I think they are Nodding Groundsel but not sure about it. Took this "close up" with a Sigma 10-20 mm lens and flash with unexpected but not unpleasant results.

Thanks, Jolly 007 and mcliu.

It was really dumb luck as I could not predict a good result from what I tried. It was a small aperture and the lens was very close to the reflective flower, otherwise the background was fairly dark until the sunlit area behind the trees.

Unexpected and fantastic picture. Like some revitalizing herb found in the fantasy world

Thanks, Donna. Good to see you stop by!
Musket, your explanation of the lighting is spot on, thanks.
Torgny, this plant really is unusual and is invigorating just to see.
