Macrophotography / Microphotography of Flowers & Parts of Flowers

Macrophotography provides us with a whole new method to enjoy the amazing world that we live in. It allows us to view a world that we cannot see with the naked eye, and it gives us the time to study and observe each and every nuance.


The photographer stated, "The Glory Lily, otherwise known as the Gloriosa Lily or Gloriosa rothschildiana (an African native), is perhaps one the most delicate and beautifully flowering climbing plants you will ever come across."

Flowers have so many different, unique and interesting details.

Macrophotography of flowers magically brings these details to our attention and places them in an image that we can analyze and enjoy. And flowers give us so much to enjoy – from their brightly colored petals to their small grains of pollen.

The dandelion below exhibits with amazing clarity both hard and soft textures. Notice the holes left behind when the little parachuted seed is released for dispersion. Notice also the barbs at the base off the parachute where the seed is encased, helping it to catch and attach once it has landed somewhere.

This image provides a great comparison between soft elements and hard elements.

Hello, Chasing Riley! I have taken some close up pictures that I may eventually post, if I can find the drive I stored them on. But i do not have a macro lens. They are really cool though aren't they?

Thanks for stopping by, and for commenting. I am pleased that you are enjoying them.

The Evolista from Los Angeles on December 04, 2011:

The photos are beautiful and I like the way you highlight different aspects of the flowers with your captions. The moisture on the hairs of the lily stamen was amazing. The detail with this macrophotography is so cool. Have you tried taking photos like this?

Cindy Murdoch (author) from Texas on November 30, 2011:

carriethomson - So glad that the pictures delighted you. They really are pretty. Thanks for stopping by and for commenting.

Cindy Murdoch (author) from Texas on November 30, 2011:

Chin chin - I seemed to have lost my thumb drive where I have stored many of my pictures. I hope to eventually maybe include some of my photos but I don't have the special lens either.

I hope you can get yours soon. My camera does not allow me to add an additional lens. So I don't even have to think about wanting it.

Thanks for stopping by and for commenting.

Gypsy Willow from Lake Tahoe Nevada USA , Wales UK and Taupo New Zealand on November 30, 2011:

Chin chin from Philippines on November 29, 2011:

Really beautiful pictures, homesteadbound. There's so much to appreciate in God's creation. Thanks for sharing.

I really would like to do macro photography, too. But we still don't have the special lens needed for our DSLR. For now, I can do a little of that using my point and shoot camera.

Cindy Murdoch (author) from Texas on November 29, 2011:

I can't ask for a better compliment than that, davenmidtown. Thank you very much!

Thanks for stopping by!
