Are you a Wildflower?
by David Leonhardt

Wildflowers grow from mere dust to reach their full potential.
Wildflowers grow well, even in adverse soil conditions.
Wildflowers don't require late nights at the office to grow.
Wildflowers grow thick and stick together.
Wildflowers grow strong and tall.
Wildflowers display their brilliant personalities for all to see.
Wildflowers withstand drought and grow all the more beautiful when watered.
Wildflowers withstand frost and hale.
Wildflowers last late in the season, when other flowers have given up.
Are you a wildflower?


I dont know what this is called. I hope that someone can tell me. I found this growing on the riverbank as we (with shogun and hydroxycut) were photo hunting in hydroxycut's stone quarry

Hi Allan!

Aaah so bright and pleasant, I truly like this. The DOF is one of the main attributes to this image, it gives the 'wildflower' such a nice stance... sort of a proud arch in how it leans forward. Seems promising. ;P

Really nice, and good idea not to use a frame, it would have been pointless here, the image sustains itself well enough without one. Wonderful catch... just pretty. :)


Ganda ng dating dre. =)


Hello Allan!
Great clarity and beautiful colours ain your picture!
Very good note!
Well done!

Hi Allan, nice and clear macro. I think (but IŽam not sure) it could be some type of Knotweed (Polygonum).
