WOW! That's a superb quality pic Acuta, so much so that Mrs WereBo wanted to pick them for her gin....

love the juniper berries Acuta - such great colours in them

here's a humble tomato flower - tiny and often overlooked, many vegetables have nice flowers

I don't think there is such a thing as a humble flower, they're all beautiful in their own unique way

A beautifully composed shot Zulu, from the pin-sharp detail to the fuzzy DoF, I love it for it's simplicity

You can almost small the musky aroma of the plant. It will make me look closer at vegi flowers!

I love the quality of detail of the succulent, but it's a pity it's a bit lost against the background, a little bit of cropping would cure that nicley

The daisy is beautiful, from the pastel-shading to the vivid deep colouring of the centre - Slightly increasing the DoF would get the petals in pin-sharp focus.

Both are excellent pics though

I may have posted this elsewhere - sorry. I guess I like flowers just budding as much as in full bloom.

Superb quality pics yustr, especially the way you caught the transparent covering on the onion - They have beautiful flowers when they open, something like this but more ball-shaped...




The roses are also lovely, I also like flower-buds, I think for the promise of what's to come grin:

To be honest, I haven't the faintest idea; I've never seen anything like 'em before, but they're intriguing, along with very well framed and exposed

the humble tomato flower of my previous post has turned nicely into mini truss tomatoes



here's a cucumber flower that will hopefully turn into a delicious lebanese cucumber

Lovely crisp shots Zulu, the DoF is spot-on for both foreground and background - It's amazing just how hairy some plants are


I looked out my window yesterday morning and saw my supposed 'Christmas Cactus' had lost track of time.....








Oh, it doesn't always live so dangerously, perched on the balcony-rail, I only put it there temporarily so I could get the sunlight on it for photographing....
