Wildflower

Wildflower

I found these tiny flowers on the side of my long driveway to be very difficult to photograph. Holding my small digital camera almost on the ground, I found it challenging to make the auto-focus see what my eyes saw. Makes me appreciate my eyes, and how quickly they can change focus to whatever my brain wants to see.

A decent photo let me look up Oregon wildflowers and determine this is a Slender Toothwort. With only a minimum of skinny leaves, it is distinctive. What a funny name, who comes up with these? There were many of these pale pink gems that seem to like the dappled morning sun.
