Aechmea pineliana

Aechmea pineliana (Aechmea pineliana)

I had posted a photo of this when the flowerhead had emerged, but the flowers hadn't opened. Here is one of the flowers - which measures 2mm across. They last a single day, and there are only a few opened at any one time. Of course I had to pull out the macro lens and tripod to get the photo.

Thanks! It has a 5" head, so it will be flowering for a long time.

The macro on my old camera was so easy to use. The new one is a bear of resetting..and its hard to focus when you do set it.
The old one? Press the macro button. All I had to do. Crystal clear too.
The problem was- it wasnt designed to last. The LCD broke so easy one day..and 2 years later the zoom stopped zooming.

I have a separate macro lens for my Nikon D7200, which is very straight forward. I don't like the auto focus function for macro photography, so I got one that has the manual option.

Wylie...on another board somebody brought up the possibility that coconut palms could be grown in the Azores? You thought of trying?-wink.

The biggest obstacle would be getting an actual seed. The ones in a grocery store are hulled, so they don't work.
