Nothing makes photographing flowers better than a cloudy, overcast day. Colors pop and do not get washed out with the harsh sunlight.
These flowers while tiny, grow above the surrounding grass, and go by the common name of Blue Dick. Of course, this is the reason the title of this post lists the scientific name of the plant versus the common name!
