The IXUS is causing me to see plants differently. Here we have the remains of the flower of a weed in one of the borders, it is perhaps 8mm across - I love the fine hooked detail and the colour.

Thanks for looking - do let me know what you think if you have time, Mike

I like the glitteryness of it. If that makes sense.

Excellent depth of field from what I assume is a compact camera. One comment I would make is there is a little distraction (for me anyway) from the 'purple' defused flowers at the top of the shot. When you view large and scroll down slightly, in effect cropping the top produces IMO a better framed shot with no distraction to take you off the subject matter.

A very interesting plant Mike, the stem and bloom's bottom look almost like a rose, nice hairstyle!
