Spring Beauty

Welcome to another Regular Random, where I spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with the subject as little as possible.

Over the weekend I spent five minutes with the wildflowers growing in my yard. This wildflower is colloquially called the "Spring Beauty".

Claytonia virginica, the Virginia spring beauty, eastern spring beauty, or fairy spud, is a herbaceous perennial in the family Montiaceae. Its native range is Eastern North America. Its scientific name honors Colonial Virginia botanist John Clayton.Wikipedia

I used my AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G attached to (12mm+20mm+36mm) Kenko macro extension tubes. I had some difficulty getting the shot. The flowers vibrated in the breeze. In between shot burst from the cameras, I waited for the breeze to subside. I only got a few shots before my time was up.

Spring Beauty flowers are 0.7–1.4cm in diameter.
