I love how you captured the tiny details of the pollens. They’re so lovely 🙂
Yes… for sure.
thank you! 🙂
These are stunning! But I have to share: Right after I read the title “Of Petals and Pollens” — no lie — I sneezed.
How’s that for the power of suggestion?
Mikalee, that is too much fun…my nose started itching! LOL! Great work Grethel! Beautiful work to share!! Congrats on FP!
Hahaha! Thanks. 😀
That’s a wonderful compliment, thanks a bunch! I hope you didn’t get any allergies… 🙂
Utterly beautiful and ‘delicious’ to look at. They bring the sunshine with them. Many thanks 🙂
The pleasure is mine, thank you very much. 🙂
I really really love your pictures! 😀
Thank you! That makes me happy. 😉
These are beautiful photos. I’m kinda partial to roses myself, particularly white ones (they have symbolic meanings for me).
Thanks! Unfortunately, the roses in our garden are long gone… 🙂
but not forgotten.
Sometimes plant genitals are just what I need to get inspired. Reblogged on http://www.versipellusfenris.wordpress.com and thanks for brightening up the day!
That’s nice, thanks for reblogging! 😉
Thank you very much.

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!
Thanks so much! I checked some in your gallery – they’re wonderful. I love the christmas cactus – I don’t think we have one like that here in the Philippines.
I have been kinda “allergic” to flowers since very young. You are now getting me want to know more about flowers！
oh, i hope you’ll out-grow your allergy – if that’s possible. thanks!

Photographing flowers is one of the most difficult to do because of the level of detail required. You do it exquisitely. I love the sharpness you capture in the ssence of each bloom.

flowers are so beautiful, however; pollen always find a way to attach. i love tulip and many other flowers as well.
Thanks for reblogging! Truly appreciate it.

Vivid and amazing colours, when I looked at the images a thought which came to mind – God is probably the best artist ! You’ve captured it well 🙂

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… 🙂 You’ve got some really nice photos!
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. 🙂
Simply Breathtaking photos… Sublime 🙂
Absolute glorious I love nature shots!
Wow! Really stunning photos! Thank you for the beauty
Thank you. I’m glad you liked it. 🙂

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 : )
That’s wonderful, thank you for sharing and many thanks for reblogging!;)

An amazing collection of pictures! I absolutely love macro details. If only there were the names of the plants… (obsessions of a botanist, so sorry)
Thank you very much. And yes, I’m sorry too that I didn’t know what they are called – only a few. I was hoping someone from anywhere can provide me with those info. 🙂
Beautiful captures, stunning photos.
My brother is seriously allergic to any pollen, if he goes out he gets itchy nose, throat and eyes…its horrible..
Thanks a lot! And I’m sorry to hear about your brother’s allergies… hope it will go away. 😉
These pictures take my breath away! The beauty of God’s creation is insupassable, and you captured that excellently. Your work is stunning!
Thank you very much, that is a wonderful thing to say. Truly, God is great! 🙂
