This week’s photo challenge invites us to share the structure of an everyday object.

I took this photograph of allium flowers back in June, when we visited the National Trust property Washington Old Hall. The flowers heads are huge pom-poms of colour, and when there’s a whole bed of them, it’s easy for the eye to slide over them, and miss the detail.

Up close, they are formed from hundreds of tiny individual flowers, each one perfect, and perfectly beautiful.

The bees are a bonus.

You can see many more close-up views of structures over on The Daily Post blog.

  1. Beautiful close up shot. Strikingly captured, and the allium flowers look like they are jumping out right at me 🙂 Those bees must find the flowers very sweet and tasty. A treat for them, a treat for your lens 🙂
