Inflorescence Close Up

Inflorescence

Inflorescence

As a child, my brother and I used to snap the flowers of these weeds at each other or see who could snap one the farthest distance. I never knew the name of these tall weeds; we called them snap weeds. Today, I learned they are called Buckhorn Plantains. Who knew?

I thought a close up of the inflorescence (which is a word I just learned, meaning the
complete flower head of a plant) would be a good choice for this week’s daily post photo challenge: Close Up

I took this photo with my i phone 5s using the macro setting on the camera+ app. I added a sunset filter to darken the background. I am also entering this photo into Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab Clinic.

  3. I loved what you did with the filter as it brought the ‘inflorescence’ (thanks for the lesson) to centerstage. Cool photo.
