Continuing my field study of our land.
Taken with S3 Canon:
Next two taken with the XSi Canon:
These are actually teensy flowers, like white specks in the tall grass.
I think they are in the Aster Family
And probably some kind of Fleabane or Erigeron.
Several are listed as natives of North Dakota:
1. Cutleaf Fleabane (Erigeron compositus)
2. Manyflower Fleabane (Erigeron glabellus)
3. Philadelphia Fleabane (Erigeron philadelphicus)
4. Low Fleabane (Erigeron pumilus)
5. Daisy Fleabane (Erigeron strigosus)
6. Leafystem Fleabane (Erigeron subtrinervis)
I tried googling on those, but nothing really nailed it down for sure. But very close, I think.
Strong sun, high contrast (white blossoms) = blow outs and also some Chromatic Aberration (CA) or fringing with the S3 Canon. I shot underexposed on Manual. I did notice some CA with the XSi too, but significantly less. Paint Shop Pro has a CA removal tool that works really well and I used it on these white flower closeups.
