Shrinking violet

By magnus
These flowers are really tiny but a macro shot shows the beautiful structure.
Really struggled with this shot as it was a windy day and the flowers just wouldn't sit still.

A great little flower. Nice to take them indoors on a windy day. Wink

Wonderful colours and great detail. Love the colour of the stamen against the blue petals.

You're your flower looks like the one I posted a few days ago. I think it is a Phacelia Campanularia. It closes itself in the evening and opens it's petals to
the sun.
I like your photo. JNC
