Macro Monday: Poinsettia

This is a macro of a beautiful poinsettia.  Did you know that the colorful parts are actually the bracts and the flowers are tiny and in the center of the bracts?  Check out more macros here:)

  7. It is a wonderful shot. I really like the plain red ones, but these new peppermint stick ones are great.
