Getting close up to flowers with my macro lens can be dangerous, particularly when there are bees around, but I managed to avoid the bees on this rose. The depth of colour in the centre and the delicacy of the outer petals initially drew my attention. And then I noticed the water droplets from the recent rain. So much beauty in one single flower.

This was taken at the Castlemaine Botanic Gardens where the roses were so tall I couldn’t reach most of them.

Today was my second day at my new job (yesterday being ANZAC Day) and apparently I have to go back again tomorrow!

I have a flower sitting on my kitchen window sill, waiting for me to shoot it. Hopefully I’ll get to it before it starts to fade – although there’s a certain beauty in a faded flower.

In the meantime, I’ll content myself with a flower I shot on the weekend at the Castlemaine Botanic Garden.
