Very beautiful wild flower and lovely macro.
It looks like Oxalis acetosella - Common wood-sorrel, but I'm not sure.

Whatever it is I just love the blue stigma(?)

I have not got a clue what it is but it sure is a little beauty. A bit like a little geranium that we have in the UK

Absolutely beautiful pictures! I think, that's a kind of Geranium pratense. I love this plant and I have a few varieties in the garden.

I love the violet linings on the petals very detailed!

Cameras are great tools for the visually impaired. What you can no longer see, even with glasses, becomes crystal clear in every detail on your screen.
Beautiful shots indeed with all that detail.

I so totally agree with Arija. In fact, I think the reason photography has hooked me so strongly in middle age is because I don't see well and want to know what these things look like! I hope you ID your beautiful flower. I'm frustrated with a couple now myself!
