Close-up of the pistils of a Callistemon.
Callistemon is a genus of around 30 species in the Myrtle family (Myrtaceae). All except four species are endemic to Australia, the others occurring in New Caledonia. Callistemons are commonly known as "bottlebrushes" because of the cylindrical, brush-like shape of the flower spike. They are very popular for gardens and landscaping both in Australia and overseas and numerous cultivars have been brought into cultivation.
In nature, callistemons are often found along watercourses or along the edges of swamps. They are generally plants of open forest or woodland in relatively high rainfall areas.

Exquisita composición. En lo personal me encantan las composiciones que parten de un fragmento para lograr un todo. De esta manera pueden generarse connotaciones distintas a la de la imagen total original, o simplemente, enfatizar detalles que de otra manera pasarían casi inadvertidos.

Excellent composition, good light and beautiful colours,
good sharpness and BG,
TFS, best regards,
