UNFURLING BRILLIANCE

WEEPING BOTTLE BRUSH

CALLISTEMON VIMINALIS

Australian native flowers are amazing viewed through the macro lens, showing detail barely seen with the naked eye. Callistemon flower spikes are brilliant viewed from a distance with a luminous crimson colour, but to look closely at the unfurling styles, filaments, stigmas and anthers is quite another wonder to behold.
