iPhone Closeups of Ridiculously small flowers

Really tiny flower...
Hard to even find one.
This little plant has been growing in the tortoise area. The tortoise has lots of cheeseweed to eat, but I'm worried that this little plant might be poisonous and that I'd better pull it out.

The problem is that I can't see the really really tiny flower in order to identify it!

So I've been playing around with my iPhone close-up to see if I can get a good picture.

This one is not bad.

I found this helpful article on shooting closeups with the iPhone and see that Camera+ is in my future.

More photos. Somewhere along the way, I figured that it was probably in the Caryophyllaceae. I think that this might be Polycarpon tetraphyllum (Four-leaved polycarp, Four-leaved Allseed, or Four-leaved manyseed) from looking through photos on Calflora. Non-native.

Here's another small flower, a Cyanotis somaliensis "Pussy Ears", a floral design in miniature. Very furry and well named. Not too happy with this photo. It is fuzzy when enlarged.
Same family as Tradescantia
and the leaves look similar
