once again, many fires

Now ye are flames, I'll tell you how to burn. ~John Keats, "Hyperion"

 

I love this particular plant - Crocosmia Lucifer, that is. The macro opportunities seem endless when you really sit down and spend some quality time with this one. The graceful curve of the blossoms leaving the branch, the flaming interiors of the blooms, the zigzag weave of the stalk... truly a remarkable flower.

 

Taken with my Nikon FM and a combination of reversed lenses.
