Tulip...

I found this macro in my archives.   It is the remainder of a tulip with just a single petal hanging on. 


Once again the colors are a little wonky because of my issue with blogger (even though I compensated with the saturation) but you get the idea.  I love the smoky-purplish color of the inside; I am not sure what you call the prong-like structures.  Anyone? 

Be sure to visit here for more great macros. 

TGIF!!   Have a beautiful and blessed weekend my friends!

  1. Nice photo. I believe the entire organ is the stamen, which is made up of the filament (the support) and the anther at the top, which is the pollen-producing part of the flower.

  2. Great depth of field in your shot. My tulips will look like that soon if it gets windy as they are out far too early this year.

  12. Ha, too cool. Love the processing and lonliness of a single petal. Have a great week.
