The Anther (?) segment of a Hawaiian Hibiscus flower growing in our yard. Pretty incredible what they look like close up like this!

Very pretty.
Curious what they use so many poppies for?
Are they medicinal? Here we have poppies for opioids but they're vastly different to yours here.

Hi Richard, not sure what they were grown for but they appeared in a field near me several years ago. Very colourful. Search of web for my part of the world seems to indicate medicinal purposes. But I don’t know. We haven’t seen them since.
I do grow the big ornamental poppies in the garden and they are doing quite well at the moment. I haven’t tried smoking them yet though.:-)
Regards

Turkey bush, Calytrix exstipulata (MYRTACEAE). This plant is very common on disturbed soils in the Northern Territory's Top End and, like many Myrtaceae, has leaves packed with aromatic oils. Local Aboriginal people throw branches of this plant on the campfire to release the oils, which help to keep mosquitoes away.

Sadly my wife's grandfather, Ray Petherick, passed away in his sleep on 11 March, at 92 years of age. Ray was a true gentleman and pioneer in the Litchfield National Park region: a crocodile hunter and farmer, logger, saw-miller, ethno-botanist, rock art researcher, and chronicler and photographer of local history and Aboriginal culture, with which he was intimately involved. This plant, Hibiscus petherickii, was named many years ago in his honour and will be an enduring reminder of his legacy.

Looks like lantana. A serious weed in south-east Australia and the title of an intriguing Australian film (external link).

A weed. Really? We plant those here in Louisiana! You have to buy them at the nursery. Wonderful perrenial that attracts bees and hummingbirds.

Nice. Did you use a special kind of technique?

It's shot through a bunch of other bluebells with a really long lens. I then took an out of focus shot and composited a layer with low opacity reduce the contrast a bit.

Sorry to hear of your loss Pippan. Please accept my condolences to you and your family. He must’ve been a great gentleman to have known.

This is a particularly lovely set. Each one different, but all evocative.
