[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The flowers of this micromeria are only 3-5 mm in size. The ones shown here I found to be especially nice in the sunshine on a natural dark background of the woods. M. fruticosa [Labiaceae] is very aromatic. The leaves in boiling water make a lovely “tea”, to which people ascribe medicinal properties (good for colds, stomach ache; also as an atiseptic). According to the flora it blooms from April to October, but you can find blooning much later as with this specimen.

Happy 2008!

Please see corrected contrast (my mistake!) in the workshop by Nirmal. Thank you, Nirmal!

Hello Ishi,
Another beautiful flower. Thanks a lot for sharing. Though, I feel that the picture is lacking in contrast. Please comment on my WorkShop version.
