For those of you who kindly read my blog, you will have noticed quite a few Echinacea flower shots over the past few weeks. Here is another one 🙂
I have been so amazed at the variety of images taken from this plant and the development and changes throughout the life span of one or two flowers.
I was watching this ‘stage’ of the flower the other day and it reminded me so much of a ballerina and her tutu… I thought it was so beautiful, even at the end of its life… with its lovely ruffles.
Such a contrast too.. a juxtaposition of the spiky-ness with the softness of the petals.
..and here is another image and a final stage. There is beauty everywhere!
Be sure to pop on over to Leanne’s today for week 8 of Monochrome Madness. Always amazing!
