REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Backs are beautiful, too!

I've discovered that the backs or undersides of flowers are quite fascinating when viewed in macro mode.  The sunflower has those funny little "hairs" that glisten in backlighting and the bright yellow, textured petals are cradled by those pointy geometric sepals.  This is one of my volunteer sunflowers---it grew from a black sunflower seed that escaped from one of the bird feeders in the old box elder tree.

That's so true, Evelyn! I love the backs of sunflowers - they look a bit like a woven basket to me. Gorgeous colours and details!

So many interesting things to see on a flower when viewed this close. :)

You're right - it's a great perspective and I love your frame!

That's the part I enjoy: the fuzz and other details you can't really see without the camera. This is very pretty!

Yes they are. All the fuzzies show!

This is so cheery looking. I love the sunny yellow color and seeing the little fuzzy hairs on the green part of the sunflower. How fun that it grew from a seed from the bird feeder.
