The tiny blossoms of this plant which is called “gooseberry” locally are usually unnoticed at a distance but really quite pretty when one gets to see them up close. Often, people are like that.

  1. How very beautiful! I really like your flower compositions, Montucky. Excellent in detail and very pleasing to the eye. 🙂

    • Thanks Anna. I try to catch the beauty and character of the plant if I can. This is the first photo I’ve taken of this one that I’ve liked. They are very small.

  2. The tiny little trumpets look very tropical when considered up close! I do a lot of macro shots of tiny flowers as well. Small intricate things intrigue me.

    I love your analogy to people…it is so true! Some may not display a lot of outward flash, but upon close inspection there is true beauty to be found.

    • I love to see the little things. I’ve been so happy with everything to which I’ve been introduced by the camera lens.

    • Perhaps that’s why I like wildflowers and quiet people.
