That looks like a lichen to me, rather than a flower. A lichen is a symbiont of a fungus and algae

"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Not the best flower shot I'v ever taken, but it's a wild flower called Shining Cranesbill Geranium. It measures approx a centimetre across. Taken with my phone.

I wouldn't classify this as my "Best Flower Shots", but certainly was fun to do. Shot this yesterday on Kodak Ektar 4x5 film using a Speed Graphic with a Schneider 210mm lens. I believe it was set to f/16 and about 1/50th of a second. The crop is from the full version below it. It is only the 3rd sheet of 4x5 film I've shot and the first of any color film of that size. Unless POTN has changed to allow film cameras, I won't be entering any exif data for this image.

Nice shot, and very interesting on how this image was made with a Speed Graphic and 4x5 Kodak Ektar film.

Thanks. I've been itching to shoot it, but I was struggling with the idea of tray processing so I waited until I had the SP-445 tank from Steerman Press which will process up to 4 sheets at a time in 16 oz of chemicals. This was one of the first 2 sheets that I ran through that tank and like how it turned out.
