Hi All - here's my first entry for Macro Monday. Shooting macro has been one of the photography skills that I've been interested in developing and so far I get the best results by accident! Would you recognize this strangely beautiful vegetable without the post title? For sure it's not grown commonly in my part of the southern U.S.
And here's the artichoke flower after it's past the harvest stage. Looks like an exotic sea creature, doesn't it?
And finally, here's a whole bed of artichokes in various stages of growth.
(Photos taken August 2011 at Sofiero, royal gardens in southern Sweden.)
