this sun star was given to me by my boss although i can’t remember why. it came in the tiniest flower-pot and looked more like a little tree. it was rather unique looking and the only thing written on the bottom of the flower-pot were the words mini star. after some searching i found the common name. i would love to have a yard full of this stunning colored flower.
about this photo: i placed it on the window sill outside the house so that i could use the green vegetation in the backyard as a back drop. i used my tripod, wired remote and macro lens (60 2.8) to capture. this is not a crop but a true to life-sized photo.
