I really like the colors and contrast in that first image.

Very Nice, I have tried similar shots but they never worked. Love the colors and lighting on the first one.

Thank you everyone,

I was lucky with the light and the settings. The very small red dots are the female reproductive organs as Linnéus would have said. They are very tiny but in special light they can glow like rubies

Really a challenge for close up photo. Just a few days you can see them this way

Hazels have both male and female organs but they don't pollinate themselves. They pollinate each other

Good luck with your close ups this forthcoming spring. Nature's wonders ....
