Flora from the unseen

I have yet to migrate all the images from my old photoblog, xenogere unseen, so I decided to put this little compilation together while I try to right that wrong.

  1. Wow, these are all great photos, but I think I am most intrigued by purple passion flower – the purple squiggles and lines would be at home in a work of modern art.

    And seeing the dandelion up close like that is interesting. It starts to look like a series of interconnected spheres.
