We were at our cabin last week. I did not plan on any photography other than some quick pics of the grand kids so I tossed the D5600 into the back seat along with my small camera bag that usually accompanies the D5600. By sheer luck the Tamron macro lens was in the bag.

The week was "booked" with chores not the least of which was hauling about thirty yards of rock with my old dump truck to repair the road and using a borrowed skid steer to spread and pack the rock. This is my long-winded way of saying that these flower pics were not planned and were taken over an hour or two "borrowed" one morning.

It was moderately windy and all were taken hand held. I have noted the scientific and common names for the flowers as I was able to ID them. Some ID's are still a work in progress and assistance is cheerfully welcomed.

It was a wet winter and spring so the wildflowers are amazing this year.
