Tiny and shiny

by Patrick Kavanagh

The Shiny Everlastings Xerochrysum viscosum in our front yard have provided a fantastic resource for invertebrates for months as well as being a wonderful setting for macrophotography. They are now letting go of their seeds and in so doing provide yet another beautiful subject for the camera. The choreography of these tiny seed carriers I find quite entrancing.
