Thanks first to Michael Matthews who always helps me with identifying Australian Native Flowers.

Photographed in North West Sydney, Australia

Australian bluebell is a moderately vigorous
climbing plant whose branches twine around the
stems of other plants.
Nikon D90, 90mm Tamron macro lens, 1/2000 sec, f8, ISO 500.
Processed in CS5 and Color efex pro 4, added the wet spider web which is my own texture. Added vignette with Overlay blend

Photography – my magnificent obsession… from Landscapes to Macro and everything else.
