Portrait of Ptilotus Exaltatus

Portrait of Ptilotus Exaltatus

Another of the macro shots from my last tour. This one was located at Kings Canyon with thousands of others but the small rocky overhang shading the background this one more than stood out.


I have been aiming to develop a group of macro shots documenting the wild flowers of Central Australia for some time now.

I am happy to undertake the task as these is always something now along the walks that I do everyweek on tour. So while I wait for good light to shoot decent landscapes I have my head down looking at the ground.
