oh super Macro Michael with drops of mist added. Do you know what flower it is? Greetings Peter
Hello and thanks for the compliments! :)
Unfortunatley I do not know what flower this is. I took this shot at Shore Acres Botanical Gardens near Coos Bay Oregon and it was in Late August 06
At that time I didn't have a Macro lens So I had to use my Sigma 75-300mm from about 20feet away.
I am so glad I had a tripod with me at that time :)
Hi again Michael thank you for the extra info - It's now an even more intrigueing picture knowing you did not use a common macro solution. When blown up this picture is just razor sharp with flowerdetails,droplets and everything. I have never seen anything like it. The flower is a mystery in itself - do you happen to know if it's an indigious or exotic plant in that area? Cheers Peter.
The bud was on a tree. At least it was bigger than a bush. and
THIS IMAGE WAS THE END BLOSSOM
I took the photo because the bud was Soo different from the blossom..
(to save space I'll be deleting the linked image in a week)
Michael Thank you so much! that was really a lot of extra info! It's ok with me if you delete the pic by now. I will let you know if I get near any name :) Peter
hi Michael puzzle probably solved Princess Flower beautiful but obviously a pita in Hawaii. Again thank you so much - I had never thought of stamens like that ever existed! Joyful Easter to you and your family, Peter
Yes, a Tibouchina, Michael and Peter, with their unusual sickle shaped stamens(?) - even the leaves are glorious, turning bright reds, golds and oranges in autumn. They get quite rangy if not regularly shaped, and are rather messy as well, but well worth the effort for the brilliant colors, long blooming season. This is a unique and lovely image of a favorite plant :O)
