Mountain Pink Flower Dome from Above 5786

The last post showed a distant view from below of some mountain pinks, Centaurium beyrichii, flowering near the top of a cliff along Capital of Texas Highway on June 21. The day before and a mile or so south of that spot, I’d photographed some of these plants at the entrance to the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve. They were on the ground, so I could lean over and aim straight down at each flowering dome. Here you see the center of one; yes, all these flowers were part—and only part—of a single mountain pink plant.
