Nature interlude

My wife and I tend to spend quite a bit of time out doors - and often the camera goes with us.  To give credit where its due, my wife frames a better photo than I do so many of the pictures - and usually the nicest ones - are hers.

These are close-up shots of native wildflowers, taken near Lake Diefenbaker - about 20 miles from home.

My flower identification skills are a bit lacking, but the first is a wild rose, the second is a cactus (of some kind), the last two I'm not sure about (and if anyone else does, I'd appreciate knowing.)
