What I truly love about photographing nature, is that I am always learning something new. While crawling around the field the other day looking for the tiny Eastern Tailed-Blue butterfly, I came across this equally tiny wildflower. Each flower is about the size of a dime, and the plant grows to a height of approximately 3 or 4 inches tall.

I have never seen this wildflower before, so I was somewhat worried that I might have trouble finding it’s name. I was wrong ~ simply search the internet with the phase tiny orange wildflower and there it is.

A notable feature of this plant is that the flower opens in sunshine and closes when the weather begins to deteriorate, that is, when atmospheric pressure decreases. In good weather it usually opens up early in the morning, the petals closing over sometime in the early afternoon. For these reasons it was known in some parts as Poor-man’s Barometer and Shepherd’s Weather Glass.

Baroness Orczy’s classic play and adventure novel first produced in 1903 concerned the activities of the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel. In the play, this secret society was formed by English aristocrats at the time of the French Revolution and its aim was to rescue French aristocrats from execution. The leader of this League, Sir Percy Blakeney, whose identity as the Scarlet Pimpernel was unknown to all but the society, (even to his wife), always signed his messages with a little drawing of a small red flower.

In November of 2010 I received this e-mail.

Dear Bron;
My name is Alicia Lee and I’m a homeopath in Auckland, New Zealand and I’m working on revising and updating an assignment I did for my diploma which required me to make a series of mind maps detailing the use of the remedy. My mind maps will also be published (I hope soon) as a resource book for practicing homeopaths. I’d like to place a photograph on my mind maps, both for decoration and to demonstrate the original substance of the remedy.

I am currently working on a mind map for the Anagallis arvensis – Scarlet pimpernel, and whilst searching the Internet I came across a marvellous photograph of this plant on your webpage:

This photo would be absolutely perfect on my mind map and I’m wondering if you would please allow me permission to use it on my work? I’d be really grateful for your help and I’d be happy to send you a copy of the mind map if you would like to see what I’m doing with it.
Thank you very much.
All the best, Alicia

Always happy to help, and glad that someone can use one of my images…
