Snap it {up close}


This weeks theme is up close. Being a botanist and married to another, we tend to look at plants up close. That's how we can tell them apart, and whilst I can appreciate a whole forest, or a particularly majestic or gnarled tree, I think the true beauty of plants is most appreciated up close.

I can take no credit for the following images. Rob loves to take macro photos of Tasmanian natives, and has an eye for finding something a little unusual up close. The following are just a selected few (from the 90 images he forwarded to me) and of the several thousand he has.

All images Rob Wiltshire

Hazel, a botanist, I am so excited! I will have to bow to you.....have loved plants al my life and collect botanist pics. I have met the real deal. LOVE. xx

Thanks for all your comments about Rob's photos, he loves it!
Roberta-please don't bow to me! We're always learning new things, and I certainly only know a little about specific plants, although I appreciate most!

I think being a botanist sound so exotic and clever
And I love Rob's photos - espeically the water drop on the gum flower - May Gibbs would be in heaven

Those photos are fantastic. I'm going to show them to my budding gardener and plant lover age 5. So keen to nurture his enthusiasm.
