Two daffodils flowering – time-lapse photography

Posted by wildwatertv on March 11, 2011

This is my first attempt to embed a video on the blog. Stops it being stills only. These are two daffodil buds from my garden, filmed in time lapse using a Nikon D1x over a period of four days. Grow lights are used to fool the flowers into thinking they are growing in daylight. For some plants, the day-night cycle is very important. Luckily Narcissi will flower well under artificial light. Bowens flash were used to illuminate the exposures.

Pollen

This strange world is pollen on the stamens of a rock rose flower.  It’s possible to almost feel the sticky nature of the individual grains.  Each cell of the stamen is also visible.  Photographed through a microscope using a Zeiss 10x planachromatic objective.
