Challenge has finished
The idea of this challenge is to share the variety of species of flowers that you know the name of. This is another ID type challenge where the location of said flower and name are given to show people what flowers can be found where, if entry is blank the photo will be disqualified. You must know the name of the species you are photographing, even if it is just the common name. And the species must me native to your area, no planted flowers or "volunteers" (non native species that have spread to 'wild' areas). Only have photos of flowers with the flower as the main subject, please no animals in the photo, any animals in the photo that are large enough that they distract from the flower will be disqualified.
