Passion Flower

Sandi planted this Passion Flower vine recently and it’s taken off great guns, sprouting flowers already. Up close they look fake. Shot a few frames this evening when I got home from work.

You’d think it was growing tiny flying saucers. That little doodad is the front of the flower. Hey, maybe it’s the invasion of the Body Snatchers! 🙂

The Passion Flower aroma is very loud and attracts bumblebees like crazy.

I shot all these with an old 55mm/3.5 Micro Nikkor (manual focus) on my D700. This was one of those times that made me wish for a longer macro lens!
