Spring flowers make me smile

I have a fondness for wild flowers. They grow in lush valleys and on top of rocky mountain bringing beauty to areas that can seem dull and brown. I really like to photograph these flowers. The best way for me to do this is to get down on my stomach and see them at the level they live. I feel it adds a dramatic feel to the story of the flower.

A thistle growing in Nose Hill Park.

This is in Kananaskis just above Barrier Lake.

Kananaskis again (one of my favourite places). 
Guess where? That's right, Kananaskis.

This is overlooking Crate Lake in Oregon.

This is in southern Alberta as you exit Gargantua Cave.

This flower is also at the exit of the Gargantua Cave.
