I actually found out what the weed is called! It’s apparently also called Red Robin and Crow’s Foot. Definitely one of my favourite plants to photograph. When the bulbs are caught in the background, the white hairs form a glowing aura around it and the bright purple petals complement the earthy-green leaves.
As promised, here’s the 3rd edition of macro week. Progressing in chronological order, this is from the entrance to the graveyard opposite campus. It was raining for a minute so the droplets are as delicate as the flower – a nice complement.
I’ve avoided botany like the plague throughout my degree but I think it has caught up with me. I’ve been taking photos of flowers a lot, and do not have the first clue of their classification. For all I know, this could be an apple blossom…
Help with identification would be actually really appreciated/credited!
