    We (the botanist and I) think it's Saxifrage. There's a variety called Saxifrage Californica, which grows mostly in California. Did the flowers look like this? http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/im...0000+0402+0014

    Rather interesting shot as 'saxifrage' means 'rock breaker', and it seems to be doing just that in this shot. Although the name probably came about as the plant grows in rock cracks, rather than actually breaking them.

    Someone is going to now say I'm wrong!

    Good shot.

    You must have a better 'eye' than me. I knew there was something appealing about this shot, but I just couldn't work it out.

    Yes, it does look like Saxifraga californica; California Saxifrage, (and nude)
