This is a detail of the crown or top of a poppy seed head taken with the macro lens and lit by natural light from a window – I found the pattern amazing :). This is also my entry for the 22nd Monochrome Madness Challenge which is posted on Wednesday mornings (Australia Eastern Standard Time) by curator Leanne Cole.

Stunning! Poppy seed heads are so interesting and this is a fabulous pov.
Very nice entry for MMC 22 🙂
Thank you. Yes they are fascinating 🙂
Lisa, this is a fantastic image! Holy detail! I keep hearing about how hard macro shots are from Laura and Leanne, so I give you extra kudos.
Lol – like ‘holy detail’! Thank you, not as difficult indoors with no wind though 🙂
Great macro Lisa – I had no idea what this was (I do try to guess with macro shots before reading the description)…beautiful pattern.
Nicely done 🙂
Thank you and for taking time to comment 🙂
Beautiful image!!! My apologies for not keeping up. I’m a bit distracted in my life at the moment.
It gets like that! Thank you, glad you like it – your recent posts have inspired me to pull this lens out again 🙂
Oh really? That’s cool! I love that I could inspire anyone here. Thank you!
Surreal image. It’s got all the winning ingredients .
Thanks Steve 🙂

Beautiful work, Lisa. It’s like a meteor crater caught just a split-second after impact.
