Its something thats getting on my nerves as of late is that i have a lot of flowers i tend to photograph and never ever know what they are

some are easy, dahlias, daffodils, roses..etc...i know those..but then you get those..odd things..the more exotic types of flowers..and well..thats where i have a problem

So does anyone here know of a good website, maybe similar to whatbird but for flowers and plants?

if not, other suggestions?

Hi Kenji,

there are several, and not only English-speaking. One is http://wildflowerfinde​r.org.uk/ (external link)
Another is http://www.srgc.org.uk​/smf/ (external link).

A very good German-speaking forum is http://green-24.de/forum/index.php (external link)

You can also google for some US forums - they're easy to find.

If you are shooting plants and flowers outdoors, try to find a regionalized ID book. Petersons Field Guide books come to mind. Search google and you'll likely find some regional botanists have compiled their photos and ID tips in a book as well.
