Flower #9

Close up of violet-coloured morning glory.

I see this flower outside a restaurant every week but never felt the urge to photograph it until two days ago (I had registered an account on 500px.com almost a month ago and had been uploading an image every day and was running out of “usable” images to post, so was under pressure to make decent images, stat!)

Seeing that this is the 9th flower pic I’ve posted, it’s safe to say that flower macros are my favourite. However, I should remember to read up on the flower species and learn about the flowers I photograph. I was not aware that this flower belongs to the morning glory family and went back to the restaurant in the evening to try to photograph these flowers, only to find that they had “disappeared”! But I was lucky that happened because I went back the next morning and it had rained earlier, so the flowers had droplets on their petals which made the images more striking.
