A microscopic world

While I was trying to write a new post, I decided to organise my photo archive and found the photos of an artichoke flower that I shot last summer. I recall that I didn’t like them back then. There was something about it that was bothering me and I felt that its purple color was too bright. Maybe it just wasn’t what I was expecting at the time.

That day a  family friend from Slovakia came to visit us and we went for a walk outside in the fields by the house. We stumbled upon this artichoke flower which looked really compelling and I took several shots. The next day our friend who was anxiously awaiting for the pictures, asked me if they were ready but I disappointed her by saying  that I didn’t like them.

When I came upon them this time, I changed my mind.  The color seemed just fine. I also noticed that there were tiny bugs and insects on the flower which I totally forgot they were there.

A whole microscopic world was gathered in that attractive purple artichoke flower!
