A Few Views Of Queen Anne’s Lace. July 28, 2009

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature, macro photos.

This flower really is a weed – it’s everywhere in these parts, nondescript, long and leggy and waving in the breeze.

But through its many forms and stages, I always find its umbel interesting, for its constellation of parts:

whole QAL washed

…and for its structural genius, with an array of solar collectors arranged in fractal iterations:

QAL side washed

…for the detail in its center, the blood-red blossom where Queen Anne’s needle missed its stitch:

QAL red spot

…for its angelic blush on first opening:

curled QAL

…and for how it Plays Well With Others:”

QAL and chiclory

But that’s another post.

I have really been remiss in commenting on so many posts these days. But I do view most whenever I can. I saw the picture of Queen Anne and just had to visit. It’s my all time favorite “weed”. And I don’t coose favorites easily.

Your pictures, as always, are so beautiful.
“Plays well with others” is the perfect way to speak of it.
