Banksia intricacies

BOTANICAL SUBJECT

Banksias are a common part of the Australian bush. In my life I had probably walked past a thousand Banksia flowers before I finally had a close look at one. The intricate details are clear to see if we take the time to look – photography gives us the ability to do so.
