Portuguese Squill, Up Close And Personal
Tiny vivid blue flowers with fluffy lemon yellow pollen adorn the Portuguese Squill plant, Scilla peruviana.
Alright, I admit it – I have an obsession with my macro lenses. What an amazing way to view the world! I love using them to spy on various unsuspecting bees and other insects, and I also spend a lot of time peering into the hidden depths of pollen-rich flowers and admiring delicately veined leaves and petals. Given that my love of photography blossomed out of a desire to document my gardening obsession, it’s only natural that my passion for my flowering friends remains a staple of my photography. The local nurseries are used to seeing me wander around their inventory, camera in hand. However, they don’t seem to mind too much, especially because I usually find a plant or two that I can’t resist bringing home to my tiny garden.
