Hi guys, I follow the FWF on Facebook, and they're looking for photos of native species to be used in an informational booklet next year. Here's the message they posted:

The Florida Wildflower Foundation is working on a publication featuring 10 native wildflowers for pollinators, and close-up and landscape-setting photos are needed, as well as shots of bee and butterfly activity on the flowers. If you have shots of the following species and would like to share them, please send them to [email protected]:

• Milkweed: Asclepias incarnata, Asclepias perennis and Asclepias tuberosa
• Goldenaster: Chrysopsis scabrella, Chrysopsis subulata and Chrysopsis mariana
• False rosemary: Conradina canescens, Conradina grandiflora and Conradina brevifolia
• Twinflower: Dyschoriste oblongifolia, Dyschoriste angusta and Dyschoriste humistrata
• Mock vervain: Glandularia maritima and Glandularia tampensis
• St. Johns wort: Hypericum tenuifolium, Hypericum hypericoides and Hypericum tetrapetalum
• Wild petunia: Ruellia caroliniensis
• Skullcap: Scutellaria integrifolia
• Senna/Cassia: Senna ligustrina and Senna mexicana var. chapmanii
• Aster: Symphyotrichum carolinianum, Symphyotrichum elliottii, Symphyotrichum georgianum and Symphyotrichum dumosum

Photos must be a minimum of 300 dpi and 4 by 6 inches. To be considered for the cover shot, photos should be at least 9 by 12 inches. Written permission of use from the photographer (email is acceptable) is required for all photos. The 24-page “10 More Easy Wildflowers For Butterflies and Bees” will be inserted into the 2017 issue of Real Florida Gardeners magazine, published by the Florida Association of Native Nurseries. The Foundation is grateful to the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust, which provided a grant to offset printing costs.
