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.
Today, in the rare event of no breeze, I took the opportunity to photograph the hyacinths flowering in a pot outside my front door. Although slightly bent and battered by the recent storm, Doris, they were doing their best to hold their heads up high.
I hadn’t realised that they had green tips to the petals until now.
And I only wish I could transfer some of the wondrous perfume on to this page for you to inhale.
All photos were taken using my Macro 60mm lens, hand-held.
