Photo of the Day – Trichomes

In response to this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge – prolific, I have chosen to share the hairs on a Poppy flower bud.  The botanical name for the “hair” is trichomes.

In a few days it will open and share with us it’s full beauty like the others that have already bloomed.

Thanks for visiting!

I love to work with water drops but it is so difficult to do them well. Using YouTube I researched how to make great water drops.  I came across Water Droplet Photography Additives.  

So I went out and bought some Xanthan Gum (found you the baking isle) and cheese cloth.  I did not use the cheese cloth in all honesty I forgot all about it. The video mentions using 1 teaspoon to 2 cups of water.  I found this to be way to thick for me so I just used a pinch to 2 cups of water and it turned out better.  The mixture was a bit cloudy but when I used it you do not notice any of the “cloudiness”.
