As you may have noticed I'm a bit of a fan of iphone photography, most likely because of convenience. I always have my phone in my pocket, and the quality of the images you can make with it constantly surprises me. I recently splurged on a bit of a toy - a special lense called an Olloclip that slips over the phones lense and gives you a fisheye, a wide angle and a macro lense capability. The macro lense has been the one that has been the most fun so far. I've been busy checking out the flowers from a completely different perspective. The structure of the plants is quite amazing.
The first picture is a close up of the styles emerging from the base of a Banksia Baxterii.
This picture is a closeup of the "pins" of a Pincushion flower - Leucospermum Cordifolium. So shiny!
Banksia Occidentalis looks like a rib cage, and some tiny droplets of water have been caught.
The hairy tip of a Protea Pink Ice, just as it's ready to pick. The white "ice" effect is created by tiny white hairs.

A closeup of the Brunia Albiflora - they look fierce!
Its been a fun exploration of the flowers as I haven't seen them before.
