I love taking closeup shots of the flowers. It is amazing at the detail in each one. Yesterday was a difficult day to be outside. The storms came in around 1:30 and lasted all afternoon. They finally stopped around 5 pm. That was the most lighting and thunder I think I have witnessed in a long time. Chris said we have had rain for the last 12 days straight. It is hard to believe we are supposedly in a drought. Just make sure if you decide to hike up for the day to bring a poncho or your rain gear.
