Miterwort (Mitella diphylla)

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 6 May 2008 in Plant & Nature.

These lovely flowers are tiny. I didn't notice the star until I looked at them through the macro lens. Taken at Ferncliff Wildflower Preserve, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA. last Thursday.

Constructive critique welcome, as well as just a friendly visit.

Wow, this is really beautiful and simple. I love the depth of field and the way the flower in the middle is turned away and blurred. Again, you've captured some emotion in the flowers.

@Elspeth: Elspeth: Thank you so much for your comment. I am especially happy that my love of flowers shows through in the photos. :-)

One would never notice the petals around the rim of the flower -- like exotic eyelashes. Thanks for sharing these.

Nice macro Anita. Very well composed. I specially like low contrast.

@Betty: Thanks. This flower was a fun discovery. It didn't look like much of anything to the naked eye.

Hi Anita - beautiful photo - as always!
I like the slight diagonal, next time you might tilt the camera to make it even more dramatic - corner to corner diagonal line.
