While recently hiking at a local county park in San Diego, I found these tiny purple wildflowers bordering the trail on the hillside.

Each cluster of these purple flowers was no bigger than the size of my thumbprint.

After photographing the first two clusters, I thought I had enough, until I found the next set of wildflowers and saw several tiny bugs keeping busy inside the flowers. I felt I had been transported into Miniature Land for a minute.
