A post for Macro Monday/The Creative Exchange/ i heart macro/Ruby Tuesday
Colours are the smiles of nature
The flowers of this poinsettia (green buds) are less than 1\8th of an inch in size, so my Raynox DCR-250 conversion macro lens did wonders on this shot!
The brightly coloured parts of a poinsettia are not the plant's flowers. They are actually bracts, or modified leaves surrounding the real flowers, which are the (3-5 mm) greenish-yellow buds in the centre of a bunch.
