Portuguese Squill, Up Close And Personal

Portuguese Squill, Up Close And Personal

Tiny vivid blue flowers with fluffy lemon yellow pollen adorn the Portuguese Squill plant, Scilla peruviana.

Alright, I admit it – I have an obsession with my macro lenses. What an amazing way to view the world! I love using them to spy on various unsuspecting bees and other insects, and I also spend a lot of time peering into the hidden depths of pollen-rich flowers and admiring delicately veined leaves and petals. Given that my love of photography blossomed out of a desire to document my gardening obsession, it’s only natural that my passion for my flowering friends remains a staple of my photography. The local nurseries are used to seeing me wander around their inventory, camera in hand. However, they don’t seem to mind too much, especially because I usually find a plant or two that I can’t resist bringing home to my tiny garden.

        Me too! Have you seen any of the rare turquoise flowers, such as Lachenalia viridiflora or Puya alpestris? Be still, my heart! 😉

      I separated my photography into galleries by color, and noticed blue and purple are highly represented in my work.

      My pleasure on the reblog, Matthew!

    I love the colors in this one! You do have a knack with the macro lens and a wonderful way of expressing your experience both with camera as well as words.
