A close look at the pistil and stamens of a lily flower, shot in 2010 with a mix of natural and artificial light. The spill of reproductive material (which resembles kurkuma) and the gloss on the pistil intrigued me. This is a cropped image, taken with a vintage Olympus Zuiko 50 mm 1.8 lens. The aperture was f 11.0 (PN always seem to state 9.9). Your comments are very welcome.

A very well sharp original macro of the stamens with the anthers rich in pollen and the pale pistil of this white lily. The lily symbol of purity and chastity in Christian iconography is reproduced here with the reproductive organs in full view with all their details , ciao Giangiorgio

Hi Giangiorgio,,


thank you for your beautiful comments! I like the fact you mention the lily as a Christian symbol of purity, while the lily in the photo shows the reproductive organs as you call them. Kind regards, Vincent

A picture with great aesthetic value and technical quality, wouldn't say macro, but a close up near to macro! Nice real colors despite the mixture of lighting nature also and well composed (positioned)! My sincere compliments, Vincent! Cheers! PDE
