Gumnuts photographed in macro as part of the I heart Macro Project.

  1. Gum nuts are a great subject - I really like them when the flowers are just pushing off the nuts little "hat"

    Nice pictures.

    1. Yes they are beautiful - these ones were from a small branch that had fallen from the tree, you are right, they do look even more appealing with their little "hats". I must keep a look-out for some like that. The majority of our gum trees have finished flowering so I will keep an eye on this particular tree. Thanks for your nice comments.

    1. Thanks Mary for your comments. These are quite small gumnuts, the flowers will be a creamy-yellow when they emerge.

    1. Thanks Electra, there are others that are far more interesting than these little ones, I'll keep my eye out for some to take photos of & add them to the blog. Thanks for your comment.
