I followed Carol's suggestion to switch my camera to Portrait mode for taking close-ups of flowers, because the standard mode just wasn't cutting it.
I don't think this is the Calendula I bargained for! Should I be surprised? Click here and scroll down. You tell me.
Madia elegans. I like how the camera captures the light pubescence on the stems.
Streptanthus farnsworthianus. This plant really turns me on. The white flowers get a little washed out with the flash, but it really does look like that otherwise. Tomorrow I'm going to sow a whole new flat of these seeds.
Datura wrightii, aka jimson weed, loaded with atropine and scopolamine; deadly poisonous or mildly psychoactive. I'm not going to find out.
The mystery wildflower. Everyone made great suggestions, but I'm still not sure. Is anyone surer now? I might be able to find out if I can locate the packaging of the wildflower seeds I broadcast over here. Considering the present situation de la maison that might not be possible.
The different camera settings really affect the cineraria.
This one remains elusive, I think.
