This Checkerbloom (Sidalcea malvaeflora) also known as Wild Hollyhock or Checker Mallow, was photographed on the Grey Whale Cove Trail in Pacifica. Its flowers are pale-to-bright pink, often with white, lacey veins, 5 squared off and slightly notched petals, 1-2 inches across; clustered along the stem. The flowers bloom from May to June. It's lower leaves are rounded with 7-9 very shallow lobes, higher ones are deeply cut, lobed and hairy. This flower can be seen along dry grassy trails in the Montara Mountain area.
Fortunately, I didn't need to pull out my diffuser since there was a heavy overcast perfect for macro-photography.
