Marchantia polymorpha: the Missing Images

It must have been the holiday weekend which distracted me. I omitted the most iconic images.

The stereos are crosseye and colour anaglyph.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Tree Paeony "Rokit"

I was hoping to have some images of the flower wide open but cold and dull weather have paused the opening.

I like the similarities to the rose and to tulips of the flowers. This variety has flower which, at the stage shown, are fist-sized. The plant is about waist high.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, hand-held. Apertures f8, f11, f16; ISO 250 or 400 (not in sequence). Bright overcast to moderate overcast.

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold

Shining Cranesbill (Geranium lucidum), which is growing everywhere in our garden. It's an inconspicuous flower (this one's 8mm across) but doesn't it look good close up!

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Paeony Rokit Now Open, with Stereos

This is the same plant, of which I showed the partly-open flowers. Then, they looked rather like tulips. Now they look like a Paeony, or maybe a rose. (The last image is at an intermediate stage).

The stereos are crosseye. The fourth image has some exaggeration of the effect.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, bright overcast, hand-held.

Harold

Lovely shot John. Looks a nice plant. Not one of the Cranesbills I am familiar with.

That is a really stunning flower and picture Harold. Well worth climbing on the roof to get a shot of. This shot is my favourite. The whites are super and the look and feel is enhanced by the overcast sky.

Thanks, Peter.

No need to climb on the roof. I stood on my wallet!

Actually, it was one of those plastic gardening stools which can be inverted to kneel on.

I carried the potted plant to in front of a Snowberry bush to avoid getting parts of the house in the background.

A plant which demands so little and gives so much.

Looks like a combination of motion blur and wide aperture.

Daylight Shots of Wisteria with Stereo

This is a climbing shrub with flowers which are the essence of summer. Their scent is powerful and exotic.

The stereo is crosseye.

The plant is shown in situ in morning and afternoon (watery) sun.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro,,hand-held.
