|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Blue Squill (Chamaescilla corymbosa) is a tiny plant. 3 to 4 leaves appear in the middle of winter hugging the ground, a number of small blue flowers poke out in August-September and the whole plant disappears after a few weeks. The underground tuber enables the plants to survive the harsh summer. It is a common understorey plant of the Darling Ranges, on laterite gravel.|

Your Blue Squill flowers are very beautiful, they actually remind me of the Spring Beauties which are early spring flowers here in Ohio. I love their light purplish blue petals and the bright orange stamen.
I would have thought that an f/16 aperture would have been sufficient to capture both blooms in sharp focus, but apparently not. I must admit with the front flower being in sharp focus and the back one a tad soft actually is quite attractive. Nice work!!
