Pictures of Flowers

This gallery includes a large number of pictures of wildflowers found in the Mountain West. Recently, I decided to list the flowers Scientific Name. This is difficult as the scientific name seems to change with the week. I will put a sampling of flowers in the Wild Flower and Flower Power galleries. If yiou are looking to buy flowers, might I suggest these online flower shops.

BTW, If you want to take good flowers, the secret is to knees, steady your hands. Just before snapping the picture, repeat the words: "Smile and say 'bees'."

That will make the flower light up and you will get a good shot!
