Default Some wildflowers

It rained most of Sunday so I started on the backlog of wildflowers taken over the last few weeks. Here are some of them.

# 1 Ti tree/Tea tree flowers [Leptospermum sp.]


# 2 Single ti-tree flower


# 3 Starwort [Stellaria pungens]


# 4 Native violet - blue form [Viloa hederacea]


# 5 Native daisy [Brachyscombe sp.]


These are tiny flowers. Great macro lens material!

Cheers

Bernice

Beautiful macros Bernice. It is so easy to miss these tiny flowers unless we get to their level!

So simple and beautiful, nothing like little wild flowers. Well done, Bernice!

Thank you very much indeed for your comments banksy, saly & jj. I'm really appreciating this MCON-40 macro conversion lens and its capabilities. It's a little purler!

Thanks all.

Bernice

Those are great - I especially like #5 the daisy shot - the DOF and background.

Pleased you like them Clint. They're all so small each had its own challenge, but I'm well pleased with the results.

Thank you

Bernice
