I haven't use the Rodenstock for a while so I'm going to indulge myself with two images.  :)

Great you did Paco - dreamy expression with that lens.

I'm currently borrowing a Z7 with the Z 50/1.8 S, Z 35/1.8 S and Z 24-70/4.
This is shot with the 50 at 1.8.

Very Nice Fons - I guess too much of these will give your heart problems!
I've never seen that many at the same place but sometimes in small groups.

Taken with the Z9 and 105VR F mount - Kodachrome day but breezy so used AF-C to keep them in focus. Many of these are blooming right now but no one here seems to know what they are. Not in Flora of Alaska and not listed in the invasive species list.

Since posting a few days ago I learned (thanks to social media) the identity. They are Red Campion (Silene dioica, a plant which is native to northern Europe, that is an invasive plant in Alaska. I made social media posts of this and two other invasive species after further pp in Lightroom and a more obvious watermark. Here is the new version of the image posted earlier in this thread.

Branched bur-reed (Sparganium erectum) I guess - in dusk light.

Leonurus cardiaca, known as motherwort,
is an herbaceous perennial plant in the mint family,
Lamiaceae. (wikipedia)
very thrifty on my plot, plant is also used medicinally, nature medicine,
not big pharma.
