I’ve waited patiently

For these tiny house leek flowers to open. Eachย flower is just two centimetres across from petal to petal, and the detail is a masterpiece of nature.hl2




hl3Taken this morning before the sun was too bright, I think they were worth waiting for. You can click for a bigger view.

If you like photographing details, Jen H would like to see, over at the Daily Post.

  1. Somehow it seems wrong to ask for a bigger view, when the pictures in your main post are already bigger than the actual flowers!

    Such pretty fuzzy flowers…

  2. I’ve never seen the flower. I buy leeks and enjoy them but didn’t know they had a flower. Thank you for introducing them to me. Mother Nature gave them beautiful colors and great details which you’ve captured in your photographs beautifully.
    Issy ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  3. Gilly, these shots are FABULOUS! I boasted to Viveka that Jude was the mistress of macro and could outdo Jen, but I truly think you’ve done it. Hats off to you, girl ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hey- I’m not scared of Jude (knees knocking ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ). Thanks, sweetheart- walking in Guisborough Forest with the group today. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oi you! I DID hear that! You can’t keep swapping and changing you know. But I will concur that these are the best macros I have seen from Gilly – more please! They are superb.

  4. Aren’t they gorgeous? I have some of these and a photo coming up in the next few weeks, I must say that last photo is a very good macro, but I cannot enlarge any of the photos ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    1. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ lots of people don’t even notice these tiny flowers, but they are well worth looking into. You should be able to zoom on them now!

      1. I bought one for my butler sink garden, I don’t think I have seen these before, but then I haven’t bought succulents for a long time. I shall pop back and have a look.

      2. Even better when enlarged. You should do more macro photography these are excellent. The flowers remind me of one of those tropical carnivorous plants – only they are so tiny. I expect most people viewing these don’t realise just how small the flowers are.

  5. Nature is thrilled to have its masterpieces captured in images masterfully. ๐Ÿ˜€ I like the tiny little hairs. Reminds me of a girl I used to date. Ahihihi … Both beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚

I would love to hear from you . . .
