Dried Globe Amaranth Blossom

One of the caretakers at Wegerzyn Gardens gave me a sprig of the Globe Amaranth that she had been trimming back. I left the blossoms to dry out, curious to see whether the reddish purple color would fade with time. They darkened slightly from its original color but still look spectacular through the macro lens attachment for my cellphone.
Lovely flower!

Gorgeous colour and I have learnt one can get a macro lens for a cell phone.

@quietpurplehaze I was so surprised to find the little lens set for the cellphones at our local Walmart. It has a macro, wide angle, and a fisheye lens along with little lens caps, and the clip that holds it on over the phone's lens. It cost me about $12.00 US, and I've been having a lot of fun with it. My main problem is avoiding hand shake as it can be a bit awkward holding the camera still when using the macro lens because the DOF is really shallow.
