hardy-geranium

Another pretty hardy geranium with silvery pink petals and magenta veins. After a month without the Olympus this is one of my first ones taken with the 60mm macro lens.

    Lovely shot, Jude!

      Thanks Sue, much sharper with this camera and lens.

    How pretty 🙂

    I love the geranium promo you’re doing in your macro posts. It’s too easy to take them for granted and not see how very beautiful they are.

    1. Heyjude says:

      This is a very small flower too, and has been flowering for months now! I really want to buy some more, even the slugs and snails leave them alone.

      1. Tish Farrell says:

        They come in so many varieties since they seem to make new ones all the time. A geranium specialist I once visited described them as being very promiscuous. But with such stunning results!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Haha… yes I heard that they like to ‘mingle’

    so pretty- love the contrast in pink!

  5. desleyjane says:

    Yay for the Oly. Beautiful shot.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, good to have it back 🙂

  6. Gorgeous macro, Jude. Such a pretty colour. 🙂

  7. Look at that clarity! Your camera has certainly come home from hospital in fine health.

      It was so good to use this lens again! I even made myself take it out for the day – no other lens – to get used to it.

    Like gossamer wings 🙂 Really lovely, Jude.

  9. Lucid Gypsy says:

    I always wonder why when i see such fine veining, it’s so complex.

  10. Debra says:

    What a beautiful geranium. I’ve never seen this particular variety or color. And excellent photographic detail, Jude. 🙂

    Stunning, & when clicked and zoomed even better, Jude

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes this one is well-worth enlarging.

  12. What a beautiful little flower – I love it’s shimmery sparkle.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Strange isn’t it that you don’t really notice the sparkle until it is enlarged. In the garden I can’t see it at all.

      1. Flowers are terribly clever things, aren’t they? I took some photos of our white roses and it wasn’t until I enlarged them that I could see the sparkle.

    Wow phenomenal! love the details in the petals.

    Your macro shows what I’ve never seen in a geranium petal!
