Description:

Sweet little pink flower, seems to be a kind of cranesbill... I could not find the ID, so any help would be great :)

Thank you so much for checking this out! I definitely think you are right, it must be a cranesbill, but I cannot find the subspecies.... The petals are very distinctive with the two cuts on each and nothing seems to match that... However, I have another spotting of a similar flower (first I thought it is the same) which now, thanks to you, I see is a Geranium robertianum. Unfortunately, it's a bit out of focus and I did not upload it here...

Very pretty spotting :) I think this is a kind of cranesbill, based on the cool shape of the buds I can see in the background. I had a quick look in my wild flower guide, the closest I could find was the cut-leaved cranesbill, but this isn't it. My guide only covers flowers found in the UK, so maybe you could look up what kind of cranesbills you get in your area! Also it would be super helpful to see the leaves too. Lovely photographs :)
