DesleyJane – a lovely arty scientist now living in Melbourne – is also a wonderful photographer and a huge macro fan. She has a new weekly challenge called “regularrandom“ for anyone to join in with which involves spending 5 minutes with the subject matter.
This week I chose a crocus from my garden. I took it indoors to photograph out of the wind and placed it on top of a blue glass dish in my conservatory which gets a lot of light. I was particularly fascinated by the reproductive structure – three feathery stigmas and three anthers. The petals appear iridescent and shiny.
And afterwards I couldn’t help playing with the editing software:
All photos were taken using my Olympus OM-D E-10 camera and Macro 60 mm lens.
