Pocket-sized art with more uses than you can wave a Bic at. Birthdays, thanks yous, Valentines or even Wednesdays, there’s always an occasion for a stunning card. From promotional weapon to distant friend-contactor, our cards are more versatile than Optimus Prime.
Cards are designed to suit the most common image ratio of 3:2, but any image size can be printed—we just leave a white border.

Thank you for looking at my work. I use a Canon 450D and 7D with Canon and Tamron lenses. Some of my work is manipulated in software, often using textures and sometimes blending with 2 or more images.

I find these too and can never put a name to them, they are cute little plants :)
I want to put this in a succulent family….is there a group here on RB that specializes in that?
I know, it does look a bit succulent, but I doubt very much it would be as growing quite profusely in Australian bushland. Thanks Carla.

I believe it is a member of the echeveria group – nice shot
I don’t think it is Chris ‘cause it’s growing in WA bushland with other Australian natives and it’s also a lot smaller than it looks here. It’s very tiny.
Most succulents that I’m familiar with grow in dry areas….I’ve no idea what the bushlands are like but the structure of this particular plant has the look of a succulent or like missmoneypenny suggested, a type of echeveria.It looks very delicate! Is there a type of evergreen type plants there as well? Wondering about the fallen leaves around it…reminds me of Pine or simliar trees.
It’s amongst Australia native plants, which need the winter rains to flower. No evergreens. The trees around are mostly gum trees and other native varieties. Some plants, particularly African, tend to naturalise themselves in Australia if that’s a clue.
Maybe one of the triggerplants (Stylidium species)? It’s kind of familiar for some of he members of that genus / family.Cheers, Greg
You are such a clever and informative chap Greg. Thanks so much. I’ve checked out Stylidiums on Google and it seems to be a Stylidium eriorrhizum and from what I can gather on the limited info available it is an Australian native.
Ahaaaa…Trigger Plants! Never knew about those til now!I also forgot that you have the gum three there….I’ve seen them here in California as an introduced species but that’s been years ago.Thanx Elaine for a wonderful puzzler and yeah for orkology for helping open my eyes to a knew family of plants I’ve never heard of
One of the wonderful things about RB is that we learn more than just photography. LOL!
