Bottle Brush Buds by jamibann

Bottle Brush Buds

I actually went to get a shot of the full flower of the bottlebrush tree, but then spotted these buds waiting to burst forth! I thought they were more unusual than the full bloom.
Wow and wow again. Fav. So beautiful.

@bristolrose @amandal Oh, thank you so much girls! :-)

Perfect timing! Love the tiny little bit of bloom popping out!
April 20th, 2014  
@luvmynynix Indeed! The buds look hard and waxy whilst the actual flower looks soft and featherlike. Interesting!

I have two trees and have never paid attention to the buds, shame on me since they are gorgeous and it's a FAV.

I have two bottle brushes growing in my garden and have never thought to take close look like that! Fav for me

This is one I've just heard of but never seen. What wonderful detail and color - the lighting and dof is excellent.
April 21st, 2014  
So intriguing! They look like they're ready to explode into bloom!

This is a gorgeous shot! The focus is perfect along with amazing colors. The bloom looks like little balls of string licorice.
April 21st, 2014  
So pretty, love the detail of the buds.
April 21st, 2014  
Such an interesting shot, Issi! I love the colors and forms!
April 21st, 2014  
Amazing details captured!
April 21st, 2014  
Ha ha didn't realize I had written exactly the same as Gill! @gillg
April 21st, 2014  
Wow what amazing buds....as quirky as the full flower
April 21st, 2014  
Love the colour and the clarity, Issi - how do you get the writing on the photo. Is that your funky camera - or is it some sort of software?
April 21st, 2014  
@squaresparrow I added the writing on photoshop SS, but you can also do it with Picmonkey. It'seally easy to do!
@paulaw I know, but you were so right - it's exactly what they look like!
@taffy @milaniet @juliedduncan @dgrynn @sansjuan @cathieg @kwind Thanks everyone for the kind comments. It's always satisfying to capture something a little bit unusual. :-)

Beautiful!
April 21st, 2014  
Truly a beautiful shot! Congrats on the PP! A fav!
April 21st, 2014  
You were right, they are amazing. fav
April 22nd, 2014  
Gorgeous! At first I didn't even realize it was natural, i though human hands had made it. I like it better that the fullblown bottlebrush flower.
April 22nd, 2014  
Beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen a flower like that.
April 22nd, 2014  
wow, this looks so unusual. Lovely colour.
April 22nd, 2014  
Amazing - it looks like pink spaghetti! Fav!
April 22nd, 2014  
Never seen one like this before, usually only see pictures of them when fully in bloom. Fascinating picture.
April 22nd, 2014  
Beautiful, fascinating, actually mesmerizing! Like others, I have to say as well that I've not seen the Bottle brush at this stage in the blooming process. Most intriguing! Love the way you composed the image and the framing looks so nice. As you mentioned earlier, sometimes that interior line isn't necessary as the image is powerful enough on its own. Beautiful, and another fav for my collection.

@stiggle @carolyns @dianeburns @tristansmum @mtpagano @kiwiniknak @busylady @togger @lyndemc Thank you so much lovely 365 friends, helping me to get to the PP! Not an everyday occurrence, and therefore much appreciated! :-)
