This is a close up of a flower bud of the alien-invasive, Lantana camara in my garden. The flowers of this plant attract a lot of butterflies.
Macro Monday HQ is at Lisa's Chaos.
Great macro shot!
Oh that's such amazing macro! Lovely colours!
I love this one! Great composition, pattern, and colours! (Makes me wonder how big the flower actually is... :)
I would have never guessed that this is a flower.Cool shot!
Good evening. It is a splendid photograph. This flower seems to draw a great number of butterflies. It will be a matchless beautiful woman if this flower is a person.
Thank you all for your lovely comments! This flower bud was about 1cm in diameter and I shot it at 3 times the life size.
Beautiful macro shot, I have a lantana in my garden!Mar
Hi!Awesome Photo! Lets you look right inside! Have a great day!!Sherriehttp://sherrie-plummer.blogspot.com/2009/06/macro-monday_22.html
You sure this isn't a close up of the dragonflys' bowties?You're photography is beautiful!
If I were a butterfly I think I would be attracted too! Beautiful!
Lovely pinks and oranges in your beautiful macro shot. I could easily have mistaken this for sugar coated candies ;--)Hugs and blessings,
I would've never guessed it was a lantana if you hadnt said so. The petals look more like fuzzy puffed up pillows!
Amila: We plant that flower as a decorative over here. What a neat close-up.
Great shot as always!
this is spectacular!... and it's the first time i've seen a rectangular-like bud!... now i know how a lantana flower looks like in its early stage:)...
Oh how great flowers get in closeup Macro! I have a lot to learn, as to get very very close :-). Great composition
Hello all,Thanks a lot!!I am vey sorry it took long for your comments to appear. I am still on tour since 23/06 and had no internet until today. I hope I will be forgiven!
Wonderful Macro shot, Amila! This is the first year that I did not pick up Lantana for my gardens. It's considered an annual in my zone, it can't take our winter temps. Lantana is one of my favorites, in the color tones that you have captured.
Hi Kim,Thanks as always!Between you and me, despite the bad reputation as alien-invasives, I have planted a few Lantanas in my garden to attract butterflies and they are proving to be amazing magnets for them!I am back from an exciting birding trip and I will blog about it when I am organised.
