Day 23 is another "Macro" up very close of the flowering seed pod, of a "Cycad" plant. It has the most amazing textures & colors, and those thorn really are sharp.
Cycads are some of the oldest plants found on earth.

I like this. You have a real gift for photographing plants. This macro has great lines, texture, and color. Nice work and great eye for spotting it.

Crikey, Shez!! That is spectacular! I agree with the others - best macros yet and would make a fine print!

That is glorious. Some macros work and some are so so - but this is killer. I'm not patronizing you either. I think it's terrific. It'd make a cool poster or huge print in a contemporary living room!!
