Hello everyone, I’m still in macro mode at the moment so here is an image of the bracts which form the outside of a Protea flower (also sometimes known as sugarbushes). It’s hairy texture is both brilliant and a nightmare for macro as the hairs pick up every speck of dust and dirt. The colour reminded me of the confectionery Turkish Delight hence “Sugar Pink”.

Gorgeous. I can almost feel the texture of the bracts – don’t you just love doing macro photography 🙂

Suddenly, I have a desire for some sugar candies. Nice one. 🙂
On catch up again! I hope you had your fix for candies!
Good enough to eat …. but I guess it won’t taste as nice as Turkish Delight! 🙂

I marvel at these protea flowers so perfectly constructed to withstand the elements. Love your close-up for the textural details.
Thanks – they are amazing, I love how the texture is beautiful but so functional 😀
