PORTRAITS OF PLANTS THAT GROW NEAR THE SEA

in The Green Thumb3 months ago

In today's post, I'll show you some plants, or more precisely plant parts and details, photographed during the springtime and summer of 2021.

The minuscule flowers in this opening shot were found on the 20th of April 2021 and photographed with the macro lens. Sherardia arvensis is the name of the plant.

Here you can see the hairy leaves of the Lupinus pilosus. When I encountered this plant on 27th March of 2021, the weather was cloudy, the light low, so the first shot I took was taken with the built-in flash of the camera on.

(Enlargeable)

But, since the silver hairs of the plant looked much better in the ambient light, I took some time to put the camera on the ground, clean a bit of terrain around it, and set the options for a long exposure shot. If you enlarge this enlargeable photograph, you may notice the minuscule yellow spheres on the leaves of the fresh shoot of the Lupinus pilosus plant. In the following photograph ...

... I got closer with the macro lens.

I don't know what is this exactly. It looks like an egg of some insect.

Here you can see a nice combination of leaves. The hairy leaves of the Lupinus pilosus snd the small shoot of some clover that I wasn't able to identify without having the photograph of the flower.

On the 17th of April 2021, I photograph the small petal of the Geranium pyrenaicum flower that fell on the leaf of the same plant.

This Aristolochia rotunda was photographed on June the 19th 2021.

img_2352_malo.jpg

Here you can see another detail from the same plant.

img_8325_malo.jpg

Here you can see the interesting green-orange, spiral shoot of some plant that I wasn't able to identify. The photograph was taken on March 23 of 2021.

img_2412_malo.jpg

In this photograph from the 21st of April 2021, you can see some grass that I wasn't able to identify. It could be the Poa pratensis.

img_2397_samomalo.jpg

On that same day in April, I photographed some more grass.

img_2395_malo.jpg

I can show you how it looked ...

img_2398_samomalo.jpg

... but I can't tell you the name of the species.

img_8310_malo.jpg

This is the Euphorbia cyparissias, commonly known as the Cypress spurge.

img_8315_malo.jpg

It was photographed on the 27th of March 2021.

img_8338_maloda.jpg

In this photograph, you can take a look at the fresh shoot of the Euphorbia paralias spurge.

img_8863_malo.jpg

Here you can see the lovely red berries ...

img_8861_malo.jpg

... of the Smilax aspera plant. The photographs were taken on the 5th of September 2021.

img_8347_samomalo.jpg

Here you can see the tiny flowers of the Carex ericetorum sedge. Before flowering, the plant looks like one of the many types of grass on the coastal meadow. Here you can see only the female flowers. In the following photograph ...

img_8352_samomalo.jpg

... the male flowers are coming out above the female ones.

img_8353_malo.jpg

On this plant, the blooming is at its peak and you can see plenty of both types of flowers.

img_8357_samomalo.jpg

This plant is pretty rare here where I live and is kinda precious for the biodiversity of the area. These four photographs were taken on the 27th of March 2021.

(Enlargeable)

These are the flowers of the Potentilla heptaphylla plant, photographed on the 23rd of March 2021.

img_8329_samomalo.jpg

Here you see the young shoot of some plant that I wasn't able to identify. The photograph was taken on the 18th of March 2021.

img_8846_malo.jpg

Here, in the last photograph of this post, you can see the branches of the contorted Pinus halepensis tree that grew on the stony terrain near the sea.

AND THAT'S IT. HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS LITTLE BOTANY WALK. AS ALWAYS IN THESE POSTS ON HIVE, THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE MY WORK - THE END.

The Carex ericetorum sedge looks neat under the macro lens. It must be in full bloom by now or even past its flowering stage.

It's crazy how hairy the Lupinus pilosus is. So interesting looking 🧐

As Master Yoda once said ... "Strange creatures the plants are" 😄

Haha 😂 that must have been during the second original movie. Movie 5 I guess 🤔😅 lol

😄

@borjan saludos amigo, de todas sus fotos me encanto el Lupinus pilosus parece que las hojas tengan espinas según entiendo esa planta se da en Israel, Palestina y el Ecuador, obviamente las demás fotos también son sorprendentes.

What a great finds and especially the fluffyness of the first plant and it's leafs.
Great captures @borjan 😁
Have a great weekend!

This was a beautiful journey!

Is nice to spend a couple of minutes in the company of plants. 🙂

Yes, it is ... they are some of the best friends we will ever have...

I loved the hairy leaves of the Lupinus pilosus. The 2 types of flowers of the Carex ericetorum sedge are pretty cool.

Nice series 👍

Thanks 🙂

Good macros. Lovely plants.

Beautiful plant, thanks for sharing.

Hi @borjan ,I like many of the flowers, also the way you specify the species, the photos are great, you talk about the first photo, after seeing the filaments I saw the small spheres that you specify in the next two, in the last photo, a kind of cave is formed, nature in wisdom even teaches us to look for ways to take refuge your photos show very Well the details, I liked your work.
I wish you a happy weekend

Greetings 🙂 Have a great day ... and the rest of the weekend too.

Never had seen a Lupinus pilosus, looks like a unique creature

Mouth watering Exotic cherries,... Are they edible too?

Yes, the plant is edible. Never tried it, though.

I see @borjan , nevertheless, the plants look damn exotic, and your photos as well. I mean anyone would be tempted to try them. 😃

🙂

I'm in love with nature 😍.
!HBIT

I love how you describe and presented the nature, those shots are really awesome.
I never know that a long exposure can really enable us to see the hairy part of the plant.
thank you for the tips, gonna follow your step later on. : )
