Macro image of the week on

Succisa pratensis / Blauwe knoop
This image of Devils-bit Scabious on the brink of flowering was chosen as macro image of the week on You can see what the flower looks like once it opens in my last post. When it is still closed, however, it shows all kinds of nice structures and textures that I've tried to capture in this image. I liked this one especially because of the bend in the stem providing a nice leading line in the image.
