The Mellow Yellow Flowers in Macro challenge

This challenge closed over 6 years ago.

The Challenge

It’s cold and dreary here in the southern hemisphere, so we want to see your brightest of yellow blooms. Flowers must be in macro, so we want to see the close up details that you don’t always see with the naked eye. This is where your macro lens comes into play.. show us stamens with pollen, frilly and furry bits, ruffles, veins, you get my drift.
Get creative! Reverse your lens or screw on some extention tubes or a magnifying filter.

Photo MUST be entered into the group in order to qualify.
