Pale Corydalis (Corydalis sempervirens)

This is kind of a crappy shot but I have an excuse. Just wait and hear me out. I took the picture rather haphazardly while camping with the idea to use it later for identification and not to make a pretty picture. I just held the camera up to the flower and clicked. The camera very near took this picture on its own, really. I acted more as a human facilitator.

This flower was in bloom all over the place but I did not bring my wildflower identification guide, a mistake I would regret many times on our trip.

  1. I was so excited when I finally bought myself that same wildflower guide… Shamefully, I have yet to use it!

  2. Thanks for sharing that flower, I have never seen it before and it made a happy moment for me in my day!
