  1. Nice images. I too am into macro/flower photography and love using my light tent to “see” up close. Congratulations! There’s a link for Cheryl’s Photography on the blog post if you’d like to see some of my flower images also. Again, nice photos!

  3. Great detail, great layout! What kind of flower is 0459? I love it. It’s like a flower that woke up still wearing last night’s clothing.

    • Thank you very much! That’s a flower of Banaba tree scientifically known as ‘lagerstroemia speciosa’ – it’s an herb that can cure many diseases… that’s what they say. πŸ™‚

  6. WOW! Gorgeous pictures! I love the intricate details of each flower. They are beautiful to look at from afar but you do an amazing job at capturing exactly how beautiful each intricate detail is! I envy your skills.

  7. My nose my itch a bit by the thought of all the pollen but I do think that you have taken some beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing this unique rainbow of colours, shapes and kinds

  8. Beautiful images, ” Unbearable lightness that’s a great title for a blog, have you ever read the book and watched the movie of this . Photographing nature , flowers creates just such happines within me, do you feel that too? Feel free to check out my last blog

    • Thanks! I love the book, it’s on my top 5 list of the best – but i don’t like the movie adaptation. And yes, I definitely got what you feel… πŸ™‚ You’ve got some really nice photos!

  9. 22/4/2012- Do you actually know the names of all those flowers or do you take pictures of flowers in general because of their radiance in daylight? Your pictures reminded of painters, who use a whole array of shades and colors to amplify the beauty of flowers, inasmuch as your pictures do so well. Yet these pictures and the flowers themselves also reminded me that painter used to have (probably still do) and I am not quite certain of the name, a twooden tray on which they could mix color, the shape of the tray was/is of the same shape as a rainbow, trhough which their thumb could provide a hand grasp in opposition with the other finger, quite adequately. This in turn would remind me to the baseball glove and in which the ball comes landing during matches.
    Excellent pictures, thank you

    • Thanks a lot! That’s an interesting info. I simply love everything with regards to nature, flowers are just one of them. Unfortunately, I don’t know the names of most flowers that I shoot. Even the ones in our garden, I’m not sure what they’re called. Thank you for liking my photos. πŸ™‚

  11. Reblogged this on yogimommi and commented:
    Did you know that the flower was the first thing of value not linked to survival, having no utilitarian purpose. They have been a source of wonder and inspiration for artists, poets and mystics for ages and with little wonder. You don’t have to be any of the above to appreciate how darn pretty they are!

    This reminds me that they are truly an expression in form of the formlessness that is the true self. A fragrance of the realm of spirit one might say… A representation of the “flowering” of human consciousness.

    …that someone was actually Eckhart Tolle. I won’t claim to have come up with that myself! I thought it was such a beautiful reference, I wrote it down and happen to come across it a few days ago.

    How perfect : )
    Happy Monday!
