On the way to the shore on A-haw on the island of Sabtang, where several natural stone arches stood, we had to climb up a small fenced hill and then down the side of a cliff. On the way up and on the way down, colorful wildflowers lined our path. Obviously, I had no choice but to whip-out my macro-bellows system again! Good decision. (Thanks again Noli and Ken.)
Flowers so small yet so pretty, hiding in this far away land, so remote that most of us would not otherwise know of them. What else will we find if we bother to go look for them?
(To understand the scale of these flowers, if a flower filled half the entire height of the photograph, it would measure 6mm. That would be about the length of a single grain of rice. Yes, they're that small! These photos were shot in Batanes)
