Grevillea flowers are so varied and amazing, and their shapes and structures, their sheer beauty and design, seem to morph into other things, other worlds and other beings at times.When I saw this one I immediately thought of a spaceship!
BIG IS BEST!
flower change things beauty spaceship shapes grevillea morph
Love your perspective here Jan!!!!!!!! Brilliant shot!!!!!!!!!
Thank you Tara…I was experimenting with the camera in different positions, a bit challenging with a strong wind blowing as I had to wait for a moment of stillness between gusts…and this one just seemed a bit different and fun.
So I am rapt that you like it so much. I am quite blown away ~ ironic really! lol!
Well your creativity and talents really came through on this one!!! It can be seen as so many things, I am sure my kids could come up with something good lol……..Either way, you are very welcome!!!!!
Thank you Tara…that’s so sweet of you…really!Will file it away, or maybe bookmark it for a day when I need a boost!
awesome flower and pic … never seen something quite like this!!!
Hi poupoune…no I doubt that you have seen a flower like this. It is an Australian native Grevillea, of which there are umpteen varieties. I find them irresistable, as each one is different and they morph in different stages from bud to full ‘bloom’.
Mind you, I’ve shot this at an angle and from a position you usually don’t see them from.
THank you for your sweet comment and amazing flattery!!
Hehe…it is quite comical. I smiled when I saw it. Can’t help but think of those cartoon charachters that get flattened by falling rocks and stuff, LOL! Ah, not just any flower!
Ruth I’m so pleased you can see the comical side too. I always have fun with these flowers that leave so much to the imagination.And I find when I shoot them in macro, aspect and features which I hadn’t previously noticed/seen, become evident.
glorious macro, wonderful colour and beautiful flower. hugsxxx
Thank you so much Hilary. I always value and appreciate your wonderful, frequently insightful comments and support.
Didn’t know that you’d know the name/genus of this particular specimen
Cool shot Jan!! Looks like it’s reaching for your lens!!
Thank you so much Di. Yes that was another possible title, but I’ve already used that for another grevillea shot.One of these rare days I’m going to find time to refine my porfolio and weed out the shots, rename etc… _ONE DAY!!!_
great shot well done
Thanks very much foor your comment african. It’s always gratifying when an experiment seems to work, isn’t it?
Wow great shot Jan. Looks kinda like a spider.
Hi Sharon. Thanks for the comment…yes it does look a bit like a spider, doesn’t it ~ and I actually counted the ‘legs’, but there were more than 8!
So I don’t know what kind of spider that would make it?
Stunning shot Jan – the Grevillia is a beautiful flower with its striking colours and shape. The title so fits the image – great sense of humour.
Thanks heaps for your wonderful comment, as usual, Bev. Between macro and grevilleas, you could say I’m somewhat besotted. But these are not the easiest of flowers to actually capture well…at least I delete quite a lot of mine.Glad you relate to my weird sense of humour…I thought it looked a bit like a spaceship, so was initially going to call it take off ~ but somehow that wasn’t quite clear enough.
What a lovely thing to say. Thank you so very much.
Glad you like it.
