Spider Wort; Trinity Flower (Commelinacea, Tradescantia x andersoniana)
I love the sunsets, cultural content and creative imaginations of the images on Trek Earth.
But I can't help myself, I love the flower closeups too.

Brilliant close-up Jean. I love all the water droplets and spider's webs you captured too and the colour is amazing.

Très bien réussie cette photo.
J'aime beaucoup les gouttelettes d'eau et le petit fil d'araignée.

This is nice. Very well controlled DOF. The bud just starting to open behind the main subject is slightly out of focus, which I think works very well. It stop it from taking too much attention. The detail in the rest of the shot and the colors I beautiful.
I too love flower shots. Some members complain about them, but I generally tend to take flower shots, even on photo trips where flowers are not the main reason for the trip. If I can see the sort of flowers and conditions that a certain area can offer, it may well influence my plans for a trip. So for me at least, flower shots are very welcome.

Well I am not a fan of flower shots, but one shouldn't generalise, and I think this is one is fantastic! Firstly for the colour - I love the yellow/blue contrast. Secondly for the texture of the flower - the dew drops and spider webs give the flower a very unusual and original "feel". Great shot (even if it is a flower :) )

Wonderful colour and details of water and yellow "dots".
