Wattle up close

One of the fascinating things of macro photography is the detail that is normally not noticed. Each fluffy wattle flower is tied with a tiny yellow bow.

Words to walk with:
From Wattle and Myrtle by James Lister Cuthbertson
"Gold of the tangled wilderness of wattle,
Break in the lone green hollows of the hills,
Flame on the iron headlands of the ocean,
Gleam on the margin of the hurrying rills.

Come with thy saffron diadem and scatter
Odours of Araby that haunt the air,
Queen of our woodland, rival of the roses,
Spring in the yellow tresses of thy hair."
