what an interesting flower. never seen one, that I recall.
They are everywhere here.
What a lovely selection of pictures, I love the white rose. Popping over from #mysundayphoto
Roses are always photoworthy.
What beautiful flowers, I love the colours, Clio lending a helping hand for Coombe Mill
What a unique and beautiful flower. Thank you for linking up
The birds love them because they produce so much nectar.
What a wonderful photos! You have captured so much detail!
It's the details that make these flowers interesting I think.
Unique flowers and AWESOME photos!!
Thanks Winnie =D You might be interested to know that the nectar from these flowers was used in cooking by the Aboriginals.
I love those flowers! And that you got a bee on one of them. I can't seem to snap a bee shot not matter how hard I try. (I don't try too hard...). We have a crazy rose bush. It's been giving us yellowish, whiteish, pinkish flowers for years then BAM! Red. We found out that most rose bushes are red and the lighter colors get graphed (?) onto the red ones because red is hardier. After extreme seasons the base bush can push through. Long story longer, we now have a red and white rose bush.
Bee shots are a challenge and you do need patience - and a fast shutter speed - TV 2000 should do it. I had a beautiful rose bush that was red & white stripped roses but it didn't survive overzealous husbands re-loction of said bush. You'r bush sounds amazing. I hope we get to see pretty photos of it next time it's in bloom.
Beautiful flowers. I think I am going to have to be more observant around here for some winter flowers.
They really brighten up the week when the sky is gloom and rain.
Lovely photos.Thank you for sharing at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/06/lovely-san-juan.html
Thanks Sue, it's great to be linking back up again.
A very interesting plant and lovely photos Stella.Thanks for visiting 'Wildlife Watching with FAB'. In response to your comment I don't currently own a dedicated macro lens so all my wildlife photography is taken using a Cannon 70-300mm plus a 1.4x converter.
I've used my 55mm-250mm lens for macro's before without a converter and it's a challenge. I do have a my 17mm-70mm lens though for macro shots and it serves me well. The pair pretty much are my entire photography kit. I 'borrowed' (rather permanently) the 17-70mm from my husbands equipment. Does your 70-300mm have autofocus? I'm continually frustrated by the limits of my long lens but love the lightness for long walks.
They look like noodles! I love this flower though it makes me crave for some ramen =) #mysundayphoto
Well, I think you can eat them but the won't taste like ramen, very sweet.
Well these are very lovely :)
They certainly help to brighten a cold day =D
