It's A Small World

It's A Small World
I decided to do some gardening today, so I got on my motorbike and rode to a large reserve area that follows a creek not too far from home.

Having not been there for about 15 years, I ended up in a place where I couldn't get to the creek, so faced with some darkening skies and the occasional sprikle on my face, I decided to just look in the undergrowth for some interesting things.

I saw this creeping weed (Morning Glory) with the most vibrant blue flowers,so I snapped one off.

The centre is a deep funnel about 50mm deep, and there were a couple of black beetles on the stamen inside.

The shots below show wider vies, but I had to hold the flower up to the sky and shoot the macro with one hand, as this allowed the sky light to penetrate the tubular centre. I also had to lift the ISO setting so it is a bit grainy especially in this extreme crop from the flower below.
