I like your macros very much.
Yes, this is Indigofera exilis

I found seedpods a couple of days back on the same plant and thought of sharing them here. 2 images.
Thanks ... I am always happy to find seedpods to add to the set and to understand more.

Sharing some pictures for identification shot at Kakani, Nepal on 28 July 2016 at 6000 ft.
Check for comparative images of Indigofera ?
Looks like it matches with Indigofera exilis.
Any further validation?

Fabaceae ..???

Pl. check comparative images at 

Looks like matching but I do not have idea about the minimum height of the plant. This plant was something like matted on the ground with hardly 5/6 inches height !

Which Leguminosae ?

Pl. check comparative images at Indigofera 


Plant is hardly 30 cm. in height and spreading to floor which does not look like matching with characteristic descriptions of the both.

What about leaves, corolla and calyx? 
On checking, these seem to be young plants and may get bigger an bushy with time. So Pl. check


Would like to go with Indigofera exilis
