    • Thank you for nice comment. I actually don’t know yet what plant it is. I come across the most interesting flowers in my neighbors’ gardens! Perhaps someone who sees this on the blog will be able to identify it (Allen?) or I’ll be able to catch up with the neighbor in whose garden I spotted it. It’s a macro shot of a very small flower.

    • Thanks, Pam. I hope someone here will be able to help us identify it. It’s a close-up of a very small flower.

    • Tu es gentille. Je ne sais pas encore ce que c’est, mais peut-Γͺtre que quelqu’un ici le saura. C’est une toute petite fleur que j’ai trouvΓ©e dans le jardin d’une voisine.

        The small unbalancing produced by the red shade is the key of the image (as you state in your title), and produces that Verfremdungseffekt which gives texture to all.

        • Hi, mfr! Ahhhh, the “verfremdungseffekt”! Such a wonderful notion and comment, thank you!

    • Thank you, Scott! This was a wonderful little find. Sometimes the smallest of flowers offer the most captivating of details.

      June 15, 2012 at 2:16 pm

      • You’re very welcome. It’s so inviting. πŸ™‚

  11. You have actually reminded me of my color-blindness today 😦 I see no red at all, some blue, yellow, purple hues, and the greenish/white of the main flower…0 red ….ahh..the misery

    June 15, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    • Ahhhh, that is sooo sad!! 😦 There is a tiny dash of red in the bottom right hand quadrant of the image on one of the little petals. I’m sorry Michael. 😦

      June 15, 2012 at 2:22 pm

      • yeah, It is not drastic, but it is real (apparently) I have to be grateful though as I have really impeccable vision with the exception of this πŸ™‚

  12. Man…my eyes are getting old….I had to search for that dash…nice one

    June 15, 2012 at 4:34 pm

  13. It’s hard to say because it’s so close up, but it almost looks like a kind of carnation. But I know next to nothing about flowers and if it were a carnation, I’m sure you’d know that. So I offer no clues. But I do love this photo!

  14. A very intense picture of a flower, even with just a tiny dash of red.

    June 16, 2012 at 12:15 pm

  15. Love the movement in this…fantastic image!!!

    June 16, 2012 at 6:30 pm

  16. That’s a perfect photo!

    June 17, 2012 at 12:55 am

  17. it’s so lush, I almost want to take a bite out of it! Perfect!

    • You have the same response I do this kind of flower. Sometimes I just want to sink my teeth into them! πŸ˜€ Thanks, Anne. I always appreciate your visits.

  18. I’m working backwards playing catch-up Melanie… these extreme close-ups are great

    June 20, 2012 at 6:01 pm

  19. It looks like a delicate cabbage. I thought the same thing you and Zen did. It looks so edible! I really like the texture with all the delicate detail. And the “burst” along the edges is really effective.
