    Try putting your hand behind the flowers - usually a point'n'shoot will want to focus on everything but a hand, so that's how I used to get mine to take smaller shots.
    Ooo thanks for the tip! I have noticed that it wont focus on a hand, I will try that out next time I need to take a picture of a flower like that. I was very happy to find the Calypso orchids as well.

    "has it been raining a while?" All my life thez, all my life.

    To give you an idea here is a link to a ten day weather forecast for where I live:

    I know! I'm not arguing with that. Free water is a blessing.

    Also everyone is having these heat waves, fires and crazy wind storms and stuff. Here it has just rained, constantly. Our warmest day yet has been 72 degrees. Every day is around 55 degrees upwards of 64 degrees on nice days.

    All very nice stuff, Dex. Beautiful plants are still beautiful in the rain. Your D. anglica shots make me realize that I should grow some of that in my mini bog.

    I must visit this beautiful place!

    Great landscape shots, Dex. Really cool with the sun shining through the clouds.

    I haven't really contributed much to this website lately but I did take a lot of pictures over a couple of days of having some fun local adventures. DUW

    Some ducks -



    Beautiful spring day





    Hiking up to a hot spring. Always some interesting trees to see.





    The falls coming from the lake.



    We had to use snow shoes to hike the trail, the trail got iffy at some points.



    A boulderfall



    Club moss going into.... gametophyte production? I forgot what its called.



    Rock cave. With grizzly bears around I didn't feel like checking out what was back there.





    Arriving at the lake.





    Pretty cool way to cross the river.



    Looking down the falls





    We then walked across the lake to save time.



    We weren't the only ones... Not sure why this spider was out in the middle of the lake.

    Great pics, Dex. I've always wanted to go up there and explore a little bit.

    Mosses are gametophyte dominant, so I think you mean sporophytes.
