Cyclamen Bud Macro
Photograph - Photography
A tiny pink Cyclamen bud measuring around 10mm. I find it such an intricate creation of nature with so much detail for a tiny bud.
Cyclamen is a genus of 23 species of perennials growing from tubers, valued for their flowers with upswept petals and variably patterned leaves. Cyclamen species are native to Europe and the Mediterranean Basin east to Iran, with one species in Somalia.
It was traditionally classified in the family Primulaceae but recently has been reclassified in the family Myrsinaceae.
