Default Flora: Wildflowers

These are native wildflowers of the New England Tablelands of New South Wales.

# 1 Single ti-tree flower Leptospemermum polygafolium]


# 2 Starwort [Stellaria pungens]


# 3 Native violet [Viloa hederacea]


These are quite small, around 1 cm or less, and were taken with my MCON-40 macro lens.

Cheers

Bernice

Very pretty! I like #2 the best; I think it's the uncluttered background.

They are very nice! Thanks for indicating size, I figured that the first one was tiny based on the water drop, but didn't know about the other two.

All are very nice but the second one is particularly striking for such a small wonder.

A tad soft but then again it does add to the ethereal effect of the flowers. I remember seeing similar tiny ti-flowers on my visit thru New Zealand.
Beautifully captured.
Aloha

Thank you Jeanniebug, mtngal, vsch1 & selvin. Their 'tinyness' and the last two's closeness to the ground proved quite challenging.

Cheers
