Sunshine’s Macro Monday #9

Still persisting taking close ups with my mini iPad for which I need plenty of practice. I’m continuing with the flower theme, and all of these were from our recent trip to Australia, though I have no idea what any of them are. Answers below would be much appreciated!

Sunshine’s Macro Monday is a challenge hosted by Irene encouraging us to scrutinise the smallest of details by getting up close and personal and bringing someone or something to life in a photograph. It’s a one day challenge without prompts.  Irene posts a Sunshine’s Macro Monday post each Monday, just after midnight Central Time (US) so don’t forget to use the tag SMM and mention Sunshine’s Macro Monday somewhere on your post, creat a pingback or add a link in the comment’s section of her post.

  3. I think the flowers are:
    1. Almond blossom (Prunus dulcis)
    2. Red Bottlebrush (Callistemon viminalis)
    3. Red Cordyline (Poss: Cordyline fruticosa Rubra)
    4. Variegated Croton (Poss: a ‘duck foot’ of Codiaeum variegatum)
    5. White dendrobium orchids
    6. The orange one at the bottom is a bromeliad, probably Aechmea blanchetiana

    The one of the bottlebrush with the people and palm trees behind is particularly good! 🙂

    • Yes, I was delighted to get them identified. You two have a great Sunday too. I should add that it’s been raining on and off here since yesterday evening.
