    Mammillaria carmenae: 2 Colour Forms

    This is one of the sought-after cacti, all the more so for its form rubrispina with the reddish spines. The form and/or colours of spines within a species of cactus is not unusual but here we have different colours of the flowers too.

    The red form is not natural but the result of selective breeding in Holland. It flowers are sometimes pale pink.

    I suppose I should have removed the fine silk webbing of the red on but it adds to the stereo experience.

    The stereos are crosseye. Not my best stereos for perspective but better than single frame.

        Pleione Vesuvius Leopard

        This is immediately recognisable as a Pleione, as they all are. This differs from the previous set of Pleione images in the complexity of the fine structures in the tube but principally by the number and intensity of it spots.

        The stereo is crosseye.

              Thats certainly red.
              I dont know if its just me but I find images of red flowers very difficult to get into sharp focus. Perhaps its the camera sensor or maybe just my eyesight

                  Its a shame that humans dont come with autofocus, like cameras do!

                        Two Is Company

                        The three buds on this Echinopsis developed at the same rate so I thought I would have the ideal three in the frame. but it was not to be. The images were taken on three consecutive days. My emphasis has been on control of the highlights of the white flowers.

                        The stereos are crosseye.

                        Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9 or f8, hand-held.

                                Lophophora williamsii (Peyote) Flower

                                This plant is about half mature size. If the stamens a touched they will slowly curve in towards the stipma.
