"One of His Mysterious Ways" by 

Usually the Agapanthus has a single stem to a single flower. This one in my garden chose otherwise, the shape of which I found interesting. One of those quirks of nature. Taken with a Canon 7D and 100mm Macro lens, tonemapped in Photomatix. Melton, Victoria, Australia.

I’m just getting back in photography after a long spell with just a point and shoot digital.

In June 2011, I bought my first DSLR and have become infected with the photography bug for the second time in my life.

I am in awe of the talent here on Red Bubble and that inspires me to become a better photographer.

Thanks for stopping by……… :)

    Great shot of this unusual stem. Wayne

  • Thanks Wayne. I was interested to see if the stem was going to sprout two sets of flowers, but not long after that the whole stem just split apart.
