Dear Trekkers,

Today, a macro shot from a red blazing tulip who was so kind to open his heart for me ;)

The filaments covered with pollens, were a direct invitation for the "Bees and Co." to enjoy the spring at their best and make the most of it.

I hope you enjoy the picture.

Thanks and regards,

Very neat work.

Bom dia Paras,
A masterpiece that will open my theme "memorable photos".
It should be remembered because had perfectly captured the core of the flower, so a beautiful light, precious color and good exposure.

What else can I say except it is such a beautiful macro! The details are so clear I can count the pullen. Good framing and great colors. Well done, tfs.

Interesting subject Paras - makes for a good abstract with the use of the macro lens. Bold colour and very sharp focus on the stamen...

dear Paras,
a beautiful shot of very charming center of the tulip flower,
always it is mysterious and fantastic, and you captured well that feeling here,
maybe it is communicating with the sun by this red parabolic antenna,
thank you for your excellent macro shot,
