Homage to small flowers. Houndstongue, Scarlet Pimpernel, Yellow clovers

“Look closely, the beautiful may be small.” — Kant.

That should be the slogan of macro photography. It’s a unique tool that allows us to discover and display, among other things, discover the beauty of small flowers that would otherwise go unnoticed since it’s too small to be perceived in all its splendour with a naked eye.

  1. You photos are simple, but beautiful, as are their subject matter. I read the book, The Scarlet Pimpernel, many years ago, but until recently did not know what the flower looked like - up close it's very intriguing, as was the character in the novel!

    1. I saw a couple of movies based on the book, but had no idea that the main character's nickname referred to such a small flower. Only a close up view reveals all its beauty.
