The heart of a Herb Robert Flower.  The centre third of this wide image is the stamens emerging from the white throat of the flower, covered in yellow pollen grains.  The candy striped white and magenta sides of the flower show the texture in the petals with the front and rear out of focus.

Herb Robert

DescriptionEvery year the Herb Robert flowers in the garden, and each year I try to capture the fine detail of the flower. This is the best effort so far showing the fine detail of the pollen in context. The whole flower is around 5-8mm across so this is quite highly magnified. The framed print is a slight crop to fit the frame dimensions, but is here at full width.
