    Weird

    Hi Dustin,

    I don't know what those are either. They are a nice addition to our burgeoning collection.

    I believe that this is some sort of camelia.

    Look like they are related to a Triffid or something - amazing. Excellent shot of whatever it is!
    Everyone - great shots and quite inspiring some of them!
    Phistio ~ superb - I'll shoot of shortly to see your butterflys,
    BE - well what can I say - you always come up with the goods!
    gerard - very interesting - do post that flower if you see it when it comes out.
    Well - most of my recent flower and leaf shots have been from my own gardens - however - I have just visited my Mum's place and she wants some prints of her flowers done - so (50 odd snaps later!!) I will be posting some of hers over the next few days.
    Starting off with this - which is almost straight off the camera - shame I have to re-size but the 8mp files are a tad large sometimes. I'm not good at remembering names of flowers (sorry) i loved these tiny little things and it came out just how I wanted it to
    Hope you like...

    Great shots everyone - enjoyed them all.

    This is probably the most beautiful flower that I have captured on film - a peony. Looks like raspberry ripple ice cream.

    regards

    Wombat - I love raspberry ripple!
    That's an excellent shot - you say it was from film - can you remember any details?? It looks nice and sharp.
    This next one from my mother's garden was quite tricky to get right as it had soft subtle details and could easily have washed out with a wromg exposure. - Hopefully I got it about right..

    Wombat - very, very nice shot. May have to go later for a dip of raspberry ice cream

    Geoff - IMO you got the exposure right. Thanks for sharing.

    Haven't put one up for a while, so here's one I shot today. As always, comment (good or bad) welcomed!

    do they all have to be macros? well here are some flowers you won't find in a garden. Actually you have to walk pretty far to see these, at least a day or two.

    Mike - no they don't have to all be macros. I've put a couple on here that aren't. Sometimes it's nice to take in the view. Here is another that's not a macro.

    Wombat, like the others said, excellent raspberry ripple.

    Geoff, that is a good one of white flowers. I always find it very difficult to get a good exposure of white, it looks like you nailed it.

    D Thompson, that is a very nice backlit one.

    MikeK, that is a great carpet shot.

    I have two contributions for today. First, the "red candles" are starting to come out here:


    Here is something that at first blush looks a bit like a thistle, but I don't think it is:


    BTW, that spiderweb-like stuff is tree-fluffies. There is a tree type here that takes the be-fruitful-and-multiply bit seriously and is covering the landscape with fluffies.

    Two angles of the same plant

    Hi Wombat,

    I really liked the peony shot. I can just hear Homer Simpson saying:
    Mmmmmmmm, raspberry ripple aaaahhhgghhh.

    Here is a flower taken from a low angle and a slightly higher angle. It's amazing how much the background can change.
