[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This "Pincushion Flower" originates form the Caucasus, but has been used to produce a range of cultivars. The specimens at the Univ. of Lund Botanical Garden were all blue, with diameter of about 40 mm. A really lovely Scabiosa species!

Hello Ishi

What a splendid blue colour this flower has and with a nice structure. But the image suffers from a lot of noise which can be removed. Just had to do a workshop to remove noise to try restore this splendid blue glory. Hope you dont mind.


Hello Ishi,
This flower is a real beauty. Although there's some noise in the background, this is a photo in very beautiful colours and great sharpness. Taken from an excellent POV.
Have a nice weekend,

OMGosh my favorite today!! Usually don't comment on the flora, but this is AMAZING wow. THE BLUE, such a dramatic picture of beauty. OK so now birds and BOTANY are becoming curiously interesting

Hallo Ishi
What a delightful image which I missed while being away on holiday. Wow the details captured is not only beautiful it is spectacular. I love the colour purple very much and this one image with its mostly purple colour is no exception. Thanks for sharing a stunning macro. Best regards.
