Default Flora: Wildflowers 2

More native wildflowers from the New England and Northwest NSW

# 1 Flowers from one of the many "egg 'n' bacon" bushes [Pultenaea sp]


# 2 Vanilla lily [Anthropodium sp: Anthericeae]


# 3 Grey spider flower grevillea [Grevillea acerata]


This challenge has made me get back to cataloguing last year's wildflower pics.
As before these are quite small.

Beautiful shots although a bit soft.

I agree with mtngal, that vanilla lily looks spectacular. Although it doesn't look anywhere near like the actual real vanilla orchid flower. I think someone thought that it looked like what they thought a vanilla flower should look like.

Lovely submissions.

Thank you vsch1, mtngal, calr & selvin.

Cal: I believe I need to find out more about depth of field with this macro lens, that might help with at least some of the softness.

Selvin: the name apparently comes from the vanilla fragrance which can be detected.

Thanks everyone.

Cheers

Bernice

I think #2 is just lovely! So delicate.
