Pansy Macro




"The beauteous pansies rise,
In purple, gold, and blue,

With tints of rainbow hue,

Mocking the sunset skies.
"

Love this photo of the Pansy, so warm and inviting, if I were a Bee I'd be right there stealing the pollen!

Lots of wonderful images, enjoyed my visit.

Lovely. The yellow is stunning and the little pollen is a great detail. I love macros because I see parts of flower or plants that normally go unnoticed.

The pansy smiled
With little green lips
As nectar lined
A golden petal with tinted drips...

Very beautiful pic !

I love pansies. Unfortunately they are good for just a few months in the winter time. Too hot normally. Good shot!
