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.
Still on the spring theme, this week I am having a play with a vase of narcissus which are currently bringing cheer to my house.
Narcissus is a genus of predominantly spring perennial plants in the Amaryllidaceae (amaryllis) family. Various common names including daffodil, daffadowndilly, narcissus, and jonquil are used to describe all or some members of the genus. Narcissus has conspicuous flowers with six petal-like tepals surmounted by a cup- or trumpet-shaped corona. The flowers are generally white or yellow (orange or pink in garden varieties), with either uniform or contrasting coloured tepals and corona. Wikipedia
All photos were taken using my Macro 60mm lens and an art effect on the Olympus E-10 camera.
If you would like to join in then please visit DJ’s site where you will find more information and ideas about this fun challenge which doesn’t have to involve macros.
