Raindrops on… echinacea

Raindrops on… echinacea

I’ve taken a lot of photos of echinacea over the years. And I’ll keep on doing so. I don’t know of a plant that offers such variety in its growth stage. If you do, please add a comment!

The raindrops didn’t gather on the petals, but are clustered in the middle of the flower. You’ll  need to look closely.

How close?

I’m on a bit of a macro roll at the moment. So, if that’s not your ‘cup of tea’, there will be a bit more variety next week.

With this echinacea, I’ve chosen to post this image rather than the (even) closer versions. I think the inclusion of some of the petals and the washed out background helps to frame the cone in the centre of the flower.

If you’re interested in the super-close-up versions, check out Flickr.
