I saw this flower in San Diego County in grassland. It was very small -- maybe 1/4 inch across or a little more.

I think it is a type of geranium, maybe a Storks bill but not sure. Smiling

I think you're right. Looks like common stork's bill. This link has some photos that look pretty much identical: http://www.flowersinisrael.com...
