Default Tiny Flowers

Went walking this morning after work. Found these little guys. Each bloom is about 3/16 of an inch across.
Have a nice day all. bock1965

Almost look like they're enclosed in ice. Do you know what kind of flowers they are?

Patty, I have no idea what the are. I think most would consider them weeds. The icy look is all the dew droplets on them. I thought they looked icy also when I loaded them on the computer. bock1965

The effect is really striking. Did you do anything in post-processing to add to the effect?

The only PP I did was brightness/contrast , sharpening and cropping. I was outside right as the sun was comng up. my lens was an old sears 50mm f1.7 set to f16. Between the lens and camera a vivitar 2X teleconverter and on the front of the lens were 2+ and 3+ close up lenses. Shot handheld 1/180 with onboard flash. Out of about ten shots this was the best. bock1965
