Southern Slender Ladies' Tresses (Spiranthes gracilis).  I didn't measure them, but the blossom openings are 2-3mm across.

Lovely shot, chrysoberyl.

Thanks, Click.  I have lately gotten back into macro.  This was taken with a 5D IV + Milvus 100mm + 56mm extension tubes.

Thanks Click.
I like the first one more.  It was a dainty wild flower growing by the side of the neighborhood road.

Very nice.  The first is a Deptford Pink?  The third one is nicely detailed.

Thank you Chrysoberyl for your comments.
I googles the name you provided.  Looks like, indeed, it is "Dianthus Armeria," common name Deptford Pink.  Thanks for the pointer.

I noticed that the crocuses just below the bushes in front of my house are in bloom. So just after 4:00 this afternoon I put the 100mm macro lens on my 6D2 and took some hand-held shots, using the flippy screen to compose them. I think I like this one the best:

Nicely done, stevelee.

Thanks. I rarely use autofocus with that lens, particularly when shooting a macro distances. I had noticed the flowers right before lunch, but had promised a neighbor that I would take her for a doctor's appointment, so it was almost 4pm before we got back and I finally had a chance to try some pictures. I was about to lose the sunlight on the flowers, and so I felt I didn't have time to set up a tripod and work on things so near the ground and manually focus and control depth of field. I decided to press my luck, and got several shots that were surprisingly good. This one seems to me to have the parts in focus I would have picked had I worked at it. My limited experience with the 6D2 suggests that its autofocus system is excellent.
