Wonderful photos Mole. I especially like the tiny violets. fascinating explanation also, of the role the flower's markings play in guiding the bees and other pollinating insects. I always learn a lot from you posts -- about both photography and our natural world. I agree with Harriet's assessment of the different depths of field. I'm glad to know that spring is bursting forth in your area. We still have to wait several more weeks in our area.

Well done, Mole. I am in "almost" agreement with mtngal regarding the twinleaf pictures. To me, it is a toss-up between the f/11 & the f/8 shots. I'll take them both.

MtnMan - Thanks for your kind comments - both about the photos and about the "botany lesson." Glad you enjoyed them both!

PBoerger - So glad you enjoyed these!

Tachikoma - Thanks so much - I am blessed to live in a place rich in gorgeous details.

Ira - Yes, your climate is just a little different from the southeastern US!! Have really been enjoying seeing your images of corner of the world (from the warmth of mine...)

Tsquare - Thanks so much for the helpful input!!

Hans - Thank you! Will try to mail you some warm weather soon...

third little flowers, DOF question. now i have to have a reason, don't i? : ) i think it looks softer. i'm not sure if that makes sense, but i had to have a reason, and really the other two just didn't feel quite right to me.

Rodney - Thanks so much!

Vole - Thanks for taking the time to comment - it is indeed a subtle difference (that's why I always take too many photos of the same subject...)
