|Short break from my posts from Afrika. This one taken yesterday as first flowers are showing up even in the very ugly and misty cold wheather. |
Magnolia is an ancient genus. Having evolved before bees appeared, the flowers developed to encourage pollination by beetles. As a result, the carpels of Magnolia flowers are tough, to avoid damage by eating and crawling beetles.

great sharpness and beutiful details capture, black works fantastic as a background!
A very nice and soft image captured against a very harsh and black BG...very well composed. Great exposure and details. I like how the tiny, soft and hairy leaf like structures have shown up against the datk BG. Interesting Note.
Delicados tonos los de la flor que contrastan con el fondo de la imagen.
Cordiales saludos, JL.
