I was hiking on the Lewis River today and came across several diffident kinds of wild flowers. This is one that I could not find the Name. Looking for a little help in finding out the name of this flower. Thanks for looking

Exceptional sharpness and detail. Wonderful clean a clear image with good DOF, outstanding composition and nice well saturated colors. (Could not find ID for you).

beautiful picture, the green frame is needless, TFS Ori

Hi Tom

Excellent shot with good DOF. Great detail, can even see a tiny spider behind the petals.

In the UK we call this flower Knapweed (latin name Centaurea) but I'm not sure of the exact species, possibly Lesser Knapweed. I agree with Ori - the frame is gilding the lily - well in this case the Knapweed! ;p



It is indeed Knapweed...one of the most beautiful noxious plants WA has. In Ferry and Okanogan County one is subject to all sorts of local fines for dragging it along under a car, even if it is not your fault! Crazy...some sort of thing that has to do with cattle for open range..and somehow it messes up the cattle ranchers. some people don't even talk about it in public for fear that they might be accused. And spraying is required as well..even on your own land. If you do not let the counties access the right of way, then you must be responsible for spraying it...the government...they rule everything...drives me crazy! Knapweed! And by the way it is indeed a "Wildflower"!

Bonjour Tom,
Belle composition dans laquelle le sujet est bien mis en valeur par un cadrage serré qui permet d'apprécier la finesse des détails et le naturel des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Lovely color! Nice simple composition really focusing on the main subject. Well done!
