Hidden amongst the larger, more showy blooms in a charming cottage bouquet I brought home last week were sprays of tiny pink Dianthus flowers.
Hmmm, how can such a small filler flower draw attention away from the Gerbera’s, white roses and painted daisies? Well, just look at those delicately ruffled petals and dramatically twisted stamens! 🙂
Plus, here was a prime opportunity to pull out my 105mm lens and flex my macro muscles. (Yeah, like I needed a lot of arm twisting… 😉 )
With late afternoon sun streaming through the windows, I honed in on the stamens and allowed the rest to simply happen.
See? Some stories do have a happy ending! 🙂
