I don’t know the name of this very tiny but colourful Australian Native … I will check it out next time I’m at the nursery. It is a reasonably large furry tree with these very tiny flowers. Maybe someone can give me a name!

Taken with the Nikon D80, Nikon AF-S Micro 60 mm lens. 1/200, F6.5, manual flash, hand held.

    ..Some sort of Grevillea perhaps? Whatever it is, you’ve done a lovely job with it!

  • OOh thanks Mandy … it is very tiny. Its amazing how such a large shaped tree can produce such dainty flowers. I’m inclined to think its a grevillea but will do some research and post it later♥

    Mmmm…I thought it looked a bit like a grevillea too, but then they’re not usually ‘trees’!! Brilliant capture Bev!! There is a whole new world opening up before your eyes, and as a result to us as well.

    Excellent selective focus, (would be great in the Bokeh Group ), wonderful rich colours and great contrast….the lighting’s spot on!! Well done…XXXX

    : )

  • Thanks Jan again for the comment and encouragement. The bush is about 2 – 3 metres tall and spreads to about 2 so its not a tree but more like a large bush. I’ve had it for a couple of years now and went down to cut back the Jasmin that had overgrown one portion only to discover these beautiful but very tiny flowers. I’ll go check the Bokeh Group now… thanks for the hint♥

    You have obvioulsy mastered your macro – which is more than I can say for myself! I’m having a hell of time trying to hold it still.

    Gorgeous camera work Bev!! :-))
    I’m almost certain we have them here in a park I walk past every evening. They’re definately a Grevillia of some sort, and it always fascinates me how tiny the actual blooms are. Just a couple of these little colourful heads at the end of each stalk. Blowed if I know the name thoughBev! :-/ xx

  • Thank you sweet Magee … for the comment and attempt to identify this beauty. I know the nursery have them in stock so will check it out next visit … it is an intiguing plant and flower♥
