Hi Ori

You have captured amazingly sharp detail of this lovely plant showing the fine hair
and features with great precision. An interesting (creative) composition showing the
two parallel stems running through the diagonal of the frame. Eye-catching colours
soothes the eyes. The showing of the buds, the flowers, and the fruit provides us a
good visual understanding of the full cycle of this "Scutellaria altissima".

Well done and TFS.

Very beautiful and graphically captured flowers. tfs.

Hi Ori,
Nothing escapes your camera! The tiny insect in the middle of the image proves my point! And there seems to hang a spider thread from the flower.

Scutellaria altissima is called Tall Skullcap, and they sell it on the Internet for "garden lovers". Funnily enough, it appears to be quite wide-spread in Derbyshire (home-county of my husband).

I am amazed how many of your fine studies show differently sized hair. It is also interesting, how many flowers have more than one colour, I assume to attract different pollinators.

You obviously enjoy to wander about with you - and discover so many treasures.
Perfectly presented work.
Enjoy the rest of your day,

Bonjour Ori,
Très belle macro finement détaillée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
