Flowers for the lady?
This weeks You Capture theme was flowers.
After cats, flowers are my favourite subject matter, so I enjoyed this one.
This is a macro of a Callistemon. Commonly known as a bottlebrush. It’s not native to the Perth area, but it’s a popular street tree. That unfortunately means that they spread into the bushland and need to be removed. Beautiful though, I love the little curly stamens.
You can’t see much detail in this one, but I really like the light in it. It’s an Acacia denticulosa, again not native to the Perth area, but not a weed plant either. It has large rough leaves which has earnt it the common name Sandpaper wattle. The wattle flowers are long and look like Cheetos.
This is a macro of a Grevillea flower. Each one is a singular flower, the long stamens are out of shot.
This is the back of Kangaroo paw flower. They open right out and this bit curls back so that a bird can get in to pollinate the flower.
