Heart of a delicate pink camellia by 

Camellias are such delicate flowers, and to me they seem even more so in pastel shades such as this pale pink (the variety is “Nuccio’s Gem”). This is a straightforward macro study of the flower’s center with a few fragile petals. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/10, 1/125 sec., ISO 1600, open shade, handheld) Subtle texture (Joyeuse) from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures

    Love this. That swirl of delicate pink around the centre is bewitching!

  • Thank you, Bette! I was drawn to this flower because of the small petals entering the center, a characteristic not evident on most of the other flowers on this bush.
