Artsy Wildflower

I read that Table Mountain is home to over 300 species of wildflowers each spring.  This is amazing to me.  I think I probably saw 7, although my eye isn't trained to notice the different varieties.  I don't think I'll post anymore closeups after today's, but I liked this one because it came out like a painting.  It was breezy, and so that definitely impacts closeup photos, and maybe this effect came about because of the breeeze?  I wish this shot was composed a little different, but I'm not very patient with this kind of thing, and between the soggy knees and the breeze blowing things around, this is just how it came out.  Still, I really like the light in this one.
