In the fields of Bhutan, the cosmos bloomed everywhere. I was there in October, and the temps were moderate. Always a slight breeze, and the delicate flowers were always waving in the breeze.
The Okanagan Sunflowers were in bloom everywhere on my hike yesterday, just 2 blocks from my house, and up a mountain.
I am wishing for the new colours of spring so today I’m sharing some colour from last September.
Macro photo work with a textured filter to bring out the details.
A closer look at the lotus flower in the giant lily pad pond (Peruvian Amazon). The flower was approximately 23 cm (9 inches), not including the stem.
I photographed this flower in Concepción, Chile. It is the flower of the abutilon pictum flowering maple shrub. The evergreen shrub can grow up to 5 meters and has yellow and green variegated foliage with these bright orange flowers.
