[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Stellaria cupaniana (Caryophyllaceae) is a most common annual, found in many regions of the world. Nonetheless a close look reveals its beauty. Note especially the lovely five-fold symmetry (with five sepals, five stamen, and 10 petals) and the red anthers.

The flower diameter is about 7 mm.

I wish you all a Happy 2009!

Looks almost identical to stellaria media, only, this one has a rather rounder petals.

A very nice shot with a beautiful composition. The details on the flowers are amazing.

Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!
