Default Favourite flower pic

I looked for a generic flower pic thread but didn't see one. This one is from last summer on Mosquito Creek below the Baden Powell, from a set of photos I never did post. I came across it again recently and it still makes me smile.

This is my favourite flower photo; it was taken on Flower Ridge (of all places) in Strathcona Park in the summer.



Anyone one know what this is? I'm terrible at identification, I've heard Pojan and McKinnon is a good book to own? Other recommendations?

Hybridized Columbine.

We have columbines all over the place, but I've only here and there come across the really neat dual-colour ones. Especially one this well-defined.

This is a favorite of mine as I have no particularly defined favorite, but I will say that the dwarf bunchberry is a favorite flower subject of mine:
Incidentally the droplets on the bunchberry were from a small spray bottle that I had along for such an occassion.


I'll include a favorite BW flower shot; also the dwarf bunchberry:

Flowers from Tod Mountain north of Kamloops. These were scanned from Kodachrome 35 mm slide film.

I believe this is a sagebrush mariposa lily. This was taken in July 2008 near Cache Creek.
