Before I post my next post I would like to share with you the joy of looking at nature from close up. I didn't have to go far to find the objects to be my subject as there were plenty of them in the vicinity of the house.
Using the point and shoot AZ1 3.2 megapixel Olympus camera with a 5.8 -17.4 mm lens, this is what I get. Beside some croppings, no further editing was done. How I wish I can get my hands on my dream Sony Alpha 350. With a better camera I can play around with the depth of field and the lighting.
I may put in some words later but for the moment just enjoy the pictures.
The fruit of cekur manis can be mistaken as the mangosteen fruit from this distance.
The flowers of the coconut tree are protected in the sheath of the spadix.
Once it blooms the bees will be attracted to it to pollinate it. Since coconut trees produce flowers all year round. For this reason a coconut grove is the best place to keep bee hives.
Once pollinated, the young coconut will start to emerge.
Dew or rain drops are still visible on this flower.
An unopened pumpkin flower and see how yellow is the flower petal once it opened up. Remember to wear a yellow ribbon on every Saturdays.
Offcourse only the bougainvillas can produce such colours.
