Macro shot of little tiny flower (1/4" diameter).. pretty sure it is a weed. Anyone have a clue as to what it is?

Violet Wood Sorrel? Without seeing the leaves, it's hard to tell.

It is similar.. but the flower I found has those heavy pods on them, and the stamen really protrudes... that doesn't happen on the Wood Sorrel. The Wood Sorrel is a flower.. pretty sure this is a weed!

Dandelions have flowers.

The composition seems too tight. One petal is cut off. I do like the bright and even lighting though. It really makes the color pop.

Disregard this post my phone chopped off a bit of the right petal. I just realized it's there lol

Thank you, Derrel! Haven't been shooting much lately... had fun just hitting the local park today.

Nice shoot.
The yellow on the leaves tell me it's allergy season again!

My nose is already stopped up!
