A is for... The Alphabet Photo Project

Charly on Podcastdove has a new photography project starting today which I shall endeavour to join in with every week.

The Alphabet Photo Project looks great fun and should stretch my imagination over 26 weeks!

I have a love of macro photography, especially flowers with their stunning colours and intricate designs.  I love the way macro shows every detail, this is an old photo and not nearly macro enough for me now.

For this week, A is for Ant on Aquilegia.




Aquilegia comes from the Latin 'aquila' meaning eagle as the flowers can look like an eagle swooping.


But I like to think beautiful thoughts and to me  this looks like a collection of Doves, the symbol of love, peace and harmony  .....

  3. How clever. You snuck an ant into the first shot too! They are beautiful flowers. You look like you have some interesting varieties. Mine have all cross polinated, so they aren't so colourful.#AlphabetPhoto

  12. I love aquilegia - for years I thought they were just weeds as they grew randomly in the jungle that was our front garden! I then took a photo of it, and a friend online told me what it was! Here's my A for #AlphabetPhoto x
