Macro Flowers Saturday

I am not sure if these are zucchini blossoms, or another member of the squash family.

Someone planted a little garden beside the bike path, including several of these plants.

I had never realized how hairy the inside of the blossoms can be.

These are great macros! The blossoms do look like zucchini to me.

The second shot is stunning - the way the light hits the flower - it seems to glow. Even the little beetle is enjoying the show!

Amazing details of an unknown world.
Your macros are fantastic and that little bug with green stripes makes an amazing accessory.
Have a great weekend!
