Tulip  –  This is the same type as in yesterday’s post, but showing the stigma and stamen (at least I think that’s what you call it) inside the flower head. Is is just me or does anyone else feel it kind of an intrusion posting images like this…

  1. Hello, Sonja! I suppose because of our human nature and the constant desire we all seem to have to place human traits on other objects, this might feel intrusive, but to me it’s just a lovely macro of a tulip, showcasing the way it was perfectly created to survive. I like how the yellow thing in the center (I can never remember what the parts of flowers are called :o/) looks like a plant from the depths of the sea. You did a great job on this, Sonja. :o)

    • Thank you Kari, I must admit that is how I looked at it when I took the photo, but cropping it put kind of a different perspective on it. I didn’t not want to crop it though as it was a way to show all the detail including the lovely blue/purple colour in the base of the tulip which otherwise nobody would know is there. Oh well, I don’t feel so bad now 🙂 BTW your emoticons look perfectly normal to me ? 😉

  2. Ugh! I can’t stand those auto-emoticons — my “smileys” always end up looking ridiculous. 😀
