Macro Garden Series – 3

I really liked the colour of this flower when I was photographing it, but I fell in love with it when editing. The intricacy of the stigma is amazing and the colours are stunning up close.

 

Shot at Wilson Botanic Park with my Olympus OMD EM5 with 60mm macro lens.

    Gorgeous shots! And beautiful flower. It reminds me a bit of hibiscus; the furled petals and protruding stamen. But I’m notoriously rubbish at botanical stuff, so take anything I say with a bag of salt 🙂

      LOL a whole bag! I’m rubbish at it as well. But I bet it’s related to the hibiscus somehow. Thanks so much.

      Thanks Terri. I thought that I should have removed the webs but at least it’s authentic, right?! 😜
