I haven’t taken any macro photos in a while, so when I bought my mum some flowers there were some lovely rich violet anemones also known as blue poppies that I thought were stunning and deserved a closer look.
I love the detail and texture of the petals and the indigo pollen that has fallen on to some of them. The small cluster of stamen in the centre create a balance against the smooth simple petals. And the yellow stigma is a nice contrast to the violet.
Even before fully open the petals seem to look like they are hiding a treasure in the centre.
These flowers are a real joy to look at and were a real pleasure to photograph. I hope to do take some more macro photos soon.
