Macro Crazy

Posted on

I’m just mad for taking extreme close-ups of plants lately. Here are a few:

This is the orange gerber daisy.  Can you see how the teeny tiny things curl up inside?

Here is another shot of it:

And here is a dwarf snapdragon:

And another:

A tiny dianthus type thing?

Shasta daisy bud:

This poor little flower was hidden under the daisy plant.  It is all by itself.  Could be a weed, or maybe love-in-a-mist?

Prolific weed, we all know these, but doesn’t it look neat (if a little phallic) when isolated and stark like this?

  3. Thanks guys! Now that you mention it I do particularly love the first one and think it would be nice framed. We are also thinking of framing the super close up of a droplet of water on hosta. Our house will go from pictures of our beautiful children everywhere, to pictures of plant close ups everywhere!!
