Salal (Gaultheria shallon)

Like the Mallard Duck I pictured recently, here's another local beauty I often don't pay much attention to because it is so common in this area, Salal (Gaultheria shallon). Florists prize the plant for its green foliage but I have a special fondness for its clusters of small hairy flowers.

I've never seen these before! Neat flower!

your macro photography is always fantastic! I love the detail... And they may be local just slightly north of me but I don’t recognize these guys either... or maybe I’ve just never noticed!

Beautiful macro with great details.
