Day 45 – Protea Macro Photography
For today’s photo of the day I decided to continue photographing the Protea flower and went MACRO!
When you look at a protea, or any flower for that matter, you see a pretty flower.
When you get close and ‘personal’ with a macro lens on your camera, you start to see all the tiny details that you miss and also realize how complex, fragile and delicate a flower can be.

I’m really just in awe of the details and ‘extras’ you get from a protea. In ‘normal’ view the Protea isn’t even a flower I like, but close up! OH WOW just so much to see when you pull the leaves/petals back.
I also tried some ‘fine art’ editing on the photos, adding some textures and warm colours.
The inside of Protea flowers always make me think of Tarantulas aka Baboon Spiders.
