A selection of macro shots I took during February 2015
My website has had an overhaul, I hope you like it and if there are any problems do let me know. I will no doubt be adding more stuff to it over time, especially to the galleries. Today’s post is of some more macro photos but this time of flowers. They are not perfect but I like them. I have named the flowers but if you see I have labelled one incorrect please do tell me so I can correct it.
These are all wild flowers that I see daily (when they are in flower) during my dog walk and in and around the campo of my home. The first three pictures are of the first Orchids to show themselves this year.
Everyone loves almond blossom, I am sure you will see plenty of photos as I try to get the “one shot” I am after.
This has to be one of my favourite flowers. The Bermunda buttercup only opens up when the sun is on it. They make such great subjects. The first photo was from the dog walk, then I went back a while later, the sun was fully on them and they were open as in the second photo.
These are tiny blue flowers that I often end up laying in mud or dew to try and get a shot of these.
With the Purple deadnettle, they are also tiny so once again you will find me on the floor!
The Caper flower speaks for it’self, it is beautiful.
These Narcissus have such a wonderful smell.
Again another yellow flower but it takes such a good photo.
jose: Is the Paperwhite narcissi a wild flower from the Alpujarras?
Kiersten Rowland: Hi Jose According to Wikipedia the plant is native to the Western Mediterranean region from Portugal to Greece.
