Fuzzy Blossoms

September 12, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I have a large patch of Japanese Anemones (Anemone tomentosa 'Robustissima') in my side flower garden.  They bloom for a few weeks in late summer, attracting a lot of bees.  The blossoms have a lot of lovely fuzz on the back of their petals (the word tomentosa means wooly).  The pink flowers float over the leaves on long stems.

This image was taken with a Nikon D800E, 200mm nikon macro lens, 1/320 sec, f/5.0, ISO 1600.
