Flower Macro from the Archives


I was just searching through my archives for images I hadn’t yet posted here and found this one.  It’s one of the first images I took with my 105mm macro.

These little flowers are very tiny!  They’re not the “usual” fuschia flowers that one usually sees hanging in baskets.  These flowers grow on a green and white leafed plant rooted in the ground and I’d say the flower is maybe an inch long or so, if that.  Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the plant…shocker!  If anyone does, I’d love to hear what it is.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day.  🙂

    Lovely, just lovely. The Fuschia Flower is so complicated but beautiful.

  5. Glad you are posting again – this is a lovely bloom and unusual – maybe a cross pollenator

  13. Wow, looks like an old-school lithograph in a botany book. Nice find from the archives.

  14. Finding a lovely image in one’s archives is like finding a $20 bill under the bed.

  15. It is so beautiful, and knowing how small it is just makes it more impressive. I really need to work on macro like this.

  16. One of the things I love about macros is how much different things that we *think* we know appear when the view changes so. 🙂

  17. Gorgeous macro, Laura. I love your perspective on how you took this flower. Sorry, though I do not know the name of this. I usually don’t either, so don’t feel so bad. I just take pictures because flowers are so beautiful. Again, stunning, classical image!!! Love, Amy

  18. Hi Laura,
    I’ve been meaning to come by your sight for awhile as I’ve seen your name “around the blogs” 🙂
    This is a lovely photo! Aren’t those stamen so tiny?

  19. My first thought was the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.

  20. Laura, this is so lovely and dainty.

    Blessings ~ Wendy ❀
