CMMC November Close Up or Macro

Giant Dutchman’s pipe (Aristolochia gigantea)

This is my entry for Cee´s CMMC November Close Up or Macro Challenge. I find it really fascinating to see hidden facets of nature especially flowers when being photographed closely.These photos were taken on my last trip to Münich visiting the Nymphenburg Botanical Garden and Greenhouses.Such a beautiful nature paradise!

Prickly new beginnings

Crowning glory
Aristolochia, Too pretty to handle
I really forgot how this flower called, so unique, so exquisite!
When the frilly petals left the Poppy head
Close up shot of a withering Sunflower
Remains of the withered, dried Sunflower

Thank you for the inspiration Cee!
