A fairly ordinary flower that is really interesting when you get a high magnification look:
The flower is about half an inch across. You’re seeing the anthers and stamens at the flower center. The lines of bead-like stuff are single plant cells
this is so cool
Amazing! It’s like it’s from another planet.
The bead chains, contrasting colors, and the irregular shapes are exotic-looking. I was thinking of an undersea scene, but another world fits, too. Thanks so much for commenting and for the kind words.
i agree with the previous comment 🙂 it looks out of this world 🙂
Wild colors, and a wild flower – thanks Joshi!
Thanks – great stuff at your blog and other sites…
Tiny, but intricate. Love the colors.
I’m fond of spiderworts too, and I know how hard it usually is to get all those parts in focus at the same time. You may still have spiderworts up north, but they’ve been gone in Austin for 2 to 3 months.
I did a stack to get them in focus – this was at 4x magnification. They are still blooming in my backyard. Thanks for commenting!
