I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.

    This is really pretty! From the leaves I would have said it was related to a dandelion, but no dandelion ever looked this good.

  • Thanks Martha. Definitely not a dandelion, but one of the banksias has this type of leaf but not this colour bloom.

    Not sure either, but it is a terrific capture of the Banksia – try the hookerana – I think this is the mature flower of it, it seems the only one with the colour and leaves

  • Thanks for that. I think you may well be right (as usual with Banksias). I looked it up on the web and it has the right leaves and very similar colour flower. Spelt a bit differently – banksia hookeriana. Will now re-name the picture.
