Bugs & Animals on Flowers/Foliage in Macro … January 2014

A healthy lot of tiny flowers with visiting ants, photographed at my home in Batemans Bay,
New South Wales, Australia.
The bush has flourished since moving from a pot to my garden.

The colored leaves of a Poinsettia are not the flowers, nor the petals of the plant; the colored
leaves are more correctly called bracts. The actual Poinsettia flower is the small yellow “ball”
in the middle of the colored bracts.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.
I am retired, beyond threescore years and ten.

    This is beautiful. The insides of the flower kind of look like kissy lips on alien things haha :) the colors are pretty though and so is the lighting

  • Kirsten, you are quite right, they do look a bit like lips :) Thanks so much for dropping by with your lovely comments and for adding this to your faves!

    Wow, different looking as a macro

  • Thanks Ann!
    The red bracts are so “showy” that one rarely looks at the centre.

    Beautiful shot Trish. I love the centre of this flower. I have a few shots of it myself.

  • Thank you so much Michael!
    The centre is so often overlooked because of the big showy bracts.
