Shot this guy in the tundra ecosystem in the San Juans in Colorado.

I was wanting to show the flower in its environment and give an idea of the conditions they live in and the oftentimes harshness they encounter.

Hi Glenn. I like the composition on this. I also like the patches of snow. I do wish there was a bit more flower. Not sure how close you got, you may have been at the min focus distance. Also not sure if its web compression but it seems the background isn't in focus. Having been in areas like this, I bet the winds can really pick up and beat on that flower. Thanks for sharing,
