  1. I like the iridescence in the second, where the light is reflecting, but the purer white of the first, against the blue, is very pretty too. I wouldn’t call them weeds, of course, but that’s just plant-crazy me speaking.🙂

    1. I’m not pretty good with names of plants and other vegetation. We call them weeds, because the grow wild in our garden and takes valuable space to our planted grass.

      Yet when you get up close, the weeds as such disappears and a wonderful image of a flower takes place. The size of these weeds could be about two to three inches tall and almost invisible to the eye. I looked intentionally for this one because I had seen a similar photograph of one on the Web.

      Used a black reflector as a background, a macro lens, and a tripod to take the shot. The blue background was obtained setting the camera to tungsten light. It took me about an hour setting up the gear and taking the shot, but I enjoyed every second of it. 😉

  2. I’m sorry, but I am distracted by the wrinkles in the velvet. I do like the colors of the plant and and the velvet together.
    I guess I’m just to ODC

  3. Sorry for the distractions Janet. There were placed there intentionally using a photo edition software to create the illusion of soft velvet. In fact, it is my black 33″ reflector turned blue through a camera settings trick.

    My main interest were the tiny weeds magnified through my macro lens. I do macro photography now and then when I find something interesting. In my opinion, this ordinary weed caught my attention. Thank you for your comments. Mos welcomed!
