You might have noticed that all my posts so far have featured flowers. Well, it's because flowers were my very first subjects when I started my photography adventure a few years ago. I took pictures of all the flowers in my garden and in somebody else's garden (when given the opportunity). I find taking pictures of flowers very satisfying. Just looking at them already fills me with awe of their beauty. But taking an even closer look at them through my lenses gives me a deeper understanding of the wonders of creation.
This red flower is called "red powder puff", scientific name, Calliandra haematocephala . I titled this photo "ballerinas" because it reminds me of ballerinas in their tutus.
