Jeff,
I am a bit confused with the # of pixels and the 15k size.  When I show 300 pixels the upload says I have 44500 plus K.  I decided that I would also put a copy on Cartogra so zoom could be used but I did it after I put the post on and you got in first :-[

I think the problem may be the density with which I am shooting the pictures.  When they are shot at a standard pixel rate they fall apart so I shoot all my pictures at HQ so the pixel rate is denser.  I'm just guessing.

Tom, get that jpeg optimizer program downloaded. Safe your files by pixel dimentions. Then use the optimizer to compress the photo. Optimizer can compress areas within a photo. Highly optimizing low detail areas and maintaining higher resolution in the detailed areas can drop file size sometimes to as little as 6% of original size without noticing a difference (depending on the photo)

Yep it really looks like that and dogwood isn't even close.  Astor is what it is but the book says "920 genera and 19,000 species".

Can you get a little closer than that? I did.

I would have never believed how many of the wild flowers down here are Astors.  I have skipped over a bunch of them because of the reduncency.  This one is a white-topped Astor and this time of year there are flowers everywhere.
