From my set "Best Weed Flower Micros:"

Some of these photographs appear to be close-ups of regular-sized flowers; they are not. All of these photos are micro (macro) photographs of the super-tiny blooms that blossom on common weeds.

 

Weed flowers...wild flowers...whichever appellation you want to bestow on them nonetheless these almost microscopic beauties are the flowers that bloom on the weeds in my yard.

 

Most of these flowers when measured petal tip to petal tip at their widest diameters measure 1/4" (6mm) across…or less...the entire bloom is that small. But the smallest weed flower I've shot yet is a small ring of flowers that measured less than 1/32" (.7mm) in diameter which encircled a spire which measured about 1/64" (0.3mm) in diameter.

 

For some photos I’ve included references to common objects such as the head of a paper match. On some others I’ve listed a description of the actual size of each object in the photo.

 

So far I've made over 600 photographs of over 48 varieties of weed flowers; this set represents the best of the best.
