Scarlet Pimpernel

Copyright Barbara Samuelson 1997

The incomparable Scarlet Pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis) is a tiny flower that resembles a rose, and is a member of the Primrose family. Scarlet pimpernel flowers are open only when the sun shines; their habit of closing in dull weather has given the plant the name "poor man's weather-glass." This photo was shot with an extreme close-up lens.
