  1. Perfection!! <3 Posted 9 months ago
    1. Thanks Lisa, glad you enjoyed. Such quintessentially Australian plants. I love when I see my images on the computer screen and pick up things like insects I hadn't noticed at the time of the shot.... ant top right and a tiny, tiny leafhopper at the bottom! Posted 9 months ago
  2. Really lovely! I love finding tiny, insect photobombers afterwards as well :) Posted 9 months ago

''Grevillea juniperina'', commonly known as juniper- or juniper-leaf grevillea or prickly spider-flower, is a plant of the family Proteaceae native to eastern New South Wales and south-eastern Queensland in Australia. Scottish botanist Robert Brown described the species in 1810, and seven subspecies are recognised. One subspecies, ''G. j. juniperina'', is restricted to Western Sydney and environs and is threatened by loss of habitat and housing development.
