Thank you Akira.

There can be a bit more blue and a bit less red in the bloom. Based on what I've seen soil composition may have a rôle in this variation.

Nice atmospheric lighting.  Is this flower of a magnolia kind?

These tiny magenta flowers show up in the spring at the ≈1200m level in the Mojave Desert, but ONLY if there has been adequate rain, in this case about 100mm or more. The flowers are ≈7mm in diameter.
First shot is what they look like from standing height with a 50mm lens.  Next, a close shot at ≈ 1:2 RR.  Finally, another angle showing an even smaller white flower nearby.

A very gloomy and overcast day here on Tokyo, but some small beauties to be seen :-)

I thought I saw someone asking about posting photos from flickr. Now I can't find the question. I hope I'm not posting in the wrong discussion.

In your photostream select a photo. Now look for a curved arrow on the lower right that is the symbol for share. The arrow points right. Click on that arrow. Select BBCode and select the size you want for your post from the drop down list.

Click on the code shown and the code will be automatically selected. With the code selected hold <Ctrl><c> for Windows or <Command><c> for macOS. This will copy the BBCode to embed a photograph in your post. Then in your post press <Ctrl><v>  for Windows or <Command><v> for macOS to paste the BBCode into your post.

Here is a link to a brief BBCode guide...

I hope this helps,

Here is my Li'l Flowers: Bermuda Grass Blossoms (Cynodon dactylon?)  :D

The shot was made with a Nikon D2H. I don't remember the optic used. I'm sure a Nikon PB-4 was involved. The post processing sucks but...

These flowers are tiny...

It may have been a gloomy day, but it worked out well for photography!

Interesting theme Akira - one often get impressed with big flowers, but here "less is more" :)

From today - below 1 cm each.   

Added one more - Elder flowers. Not from today .. not season yet :)

Keith, this is a pretty little byproduct!

Yes, these cute things look familiar.

Dave, this is a stunning image from your keen eyes.

Thank you, Lars, for your pretty contributions.  The "environmental portraits" of little flowers make them look even cuter.  Not having a macro lens with you will sometimes result in something pleasing.  Limitation is inspiration.

Hyacinth Meadow Garlic (Allium canadense var. hyacinthoides) and a visitor. I've not seen this species of moth before, I do not know what it is. Df, 180 f2.8 ED-IF.
