Cone and Cardinal Flowers.
Flowering Spurge. These little flowers are only about 1/4 inch across.
Top image of a Downy Lobelia was shot with a Canon G9. Haven't ID'd the second image yet. The hardest part of shooting these small flowers is that they never stop moving !!!

no idea what this is , came from the grocery store , just wanted to try something different today.
Canon 40D , 60mm macro lens , ambient inside terrible lighting.
Some very good shots in this thread. Most of my good stuff was shot with 35mm film. I don't have much to contribute. After you get the macro down where you have predictable results, the absolutely hardest shots to make are of groups of wild flowers growing in their natural setting. Lots of composition variables.
Added: Watch out for bears as you are concentrating on taking the "perfect" flower shot and capturing it when it is totally still. In one case, I had a mother black bear and two cubs wander to within 5 feet of me before I saw them in the Smoky Mts. We were all a bit surprised to say the least.

Upland Boneset and another Sweet Pea shot. The DOF with macros can drive ya nuts. I hear you on the bears 22. I've had some close encounters myself.

Pencil Flower and Lady's Thumb.
Here is a bit of a different look at a flower....
This was done by placing a piece of glass on top of a pair of drinking glasses ( on drinking glass on each side of the piece of glass ) , waxing the glass , spraying the glass with a spray bottle of water , placed the flower below the glass approx 6 inches , and shot the picture from the top ( below the glass I have a pair of off camera speedlites firing at 1/64 power ). Only a curves adjustment was done , no other Photoshop work.
