A bluebell abstraction

Bluebell Bud by Flower Abstraction 8704

The previous picture of a bud and tightly rolled flower of a bluebell, Eustoma exaltatum, was fairly straightforward. In today’s photograph I went for something more abstract by limiting my focus to the tip of a bluebell bud (and only upon seeing the photograph later did I notice that a panel of petal in the lower right corner coincidentally came into focus as well).

Like yesterday’s image, this one is from a July 6th visit to a piece of the Blackland Prairie on the east side of Interstate 35 north of Howard Lane.
