No. Your brain doesn't like what you are trying to do. Try to be as relaxed and nonchalant as you can and look into the images not at the screen surface. Some images work better for slightly further back from the screen than you might usually be.

It took me many weeks.

I seemed to have learnt a technique which works for me...

Sit straight on to the monitor
Cross your eyes until you see three images then relax and focus on the centre one, if you get the middle image but can't focus on it move back a little, I find with my laptop 13" screen I sit slightly less than arms length, sort of wrist length and with the 27" monitor slightly over fingertip length...

Moving back a bit may also be good for getting the best effect of depth for some stereo pairs.

Nice!

Potentially political?

A lovely sight and picture

It is a cornflower, a once common part of the cornfield alongside poppies and some much scarcer and lovely wild flowers. But as most UK fields are dosed with herbicides and the edges cleared with roundup they are rare. Poppies are hardier and you will see some fields with poppies but the delicate flowers have all but gone. I have a couple of shots from a field that hasn't been sprayed which i'll dig out and post to show what we lost.

This was a completely natural field in rural France in the Cevennes. i'm sure someone else can name the dozens of wildflowers which were a feature of the field. This was what we had before herbicides.











I was shown these by a botanist who named them all and also indicated those that we no longer have in the UK. Sad but progress of sorts in the corn crop yield.

Pete,

Your red flower looks like a Pasque Flower and the violet-like one is a Viola.

There are over 2,000 species to search through.

One of the trees in our garden is not feeling very well.
