Very beautiful macro...nice shot...
Thank you Juncujuncu. I was fascinated by the strength of this very delicate blossom... isn't it amaing?
Outstanding shot! The sharp focus on the stamens and pistils give it a 3-D effect.
Thank you, seabow! Won't go on holidays this summer, so I rather focuse on the tiny things on my balcony! Warm greetings.
Nice macro .Greetings , Barbaros
Thank you, Barbarosakpinar. Yes, that was pure summer... greetings, Maja
thank you dear Margot! That was another morning surprise for me... Maja
Isn't nature miraculous Maya..this delicate flower, a myriad of colour shape and form. Complex and beautiful ;.) good photo ;.)
Passiflora certainly has a special and beautiful flower, Maja. With this on your balcony you wouldn't need a summer holiday - instead you could simply imagine you were in Paraguay or Brazil, Tonga or Australia.
Hola Maja. Es otro punto de vista de ver la flor. ¡¡¡PRECIOSA!!! la tomes como la tomes es divina de fotografiar.
Good morning dear Jim - yes, nature is by far the greatest artist ~ we just have to open our eyes and souls to perceive it ~ warmest wishes to the north from Maja
Hello again dear Ian ~ I am well aware of the honour to host such a beauty on my balcony ~ I don't know if I was happier being in Brazil or Tonga ~ amazing countries, but beauty can be discovered in every secret corner, don't you think so? Wish you a very positive week, all the very best to Brisbane, Maja
Hola Jose, gracias por tu comentario ~ se lo voy a parsar a la flor, es ella que lo merece :)) Es una preciosidad, no verdad? Què ganaas tenog de que se acabe el invierno! Pero ni hablar.... un abrazo pa tí, Maja
It is very appropriate to revisit this floral gem this week, Maja.
Aussi une superbe MAcrO
Ian dear Ian ~ it is always appropriate to visit germs ~ life is future, isn't it ~ thank you my very dear one ~ Easter blessings to you ~ Maja
Roland et Sandrine, merci beaucoup! Un salut cordial a la France! Maja
Ich werde wieder versuchen, mit meiner Passion Blume....:))
Dankeschön, lieber Alfred! Bald blühlt sie wieder - dann versuche ich es auch noch einmal :) Einen schönen Frühling und liebe Grüße
Do you know why this plant got its botanical name, passiflora, Maja? (There is a clue above that you do, and yet another clue that you may not.)
As far as I am informed, the flower resembles Christ's thorn crown - is there another reason? As always, you know than I do :))
