I love the street trees of south east Queensland and have posted about lillypillies, frangipani, jacaranda, poinciana and ivory curl trees previously here: http://lightswimming.com/category/street-trees/.

The mock orange (Murraya paniculata) in my street is in full blossom at the moment, after the recent heavy rains, and the bees love it!

Here are some quick macro shots from my front yard:

This the first time that I’ve used my new flash + diffuser for macro shots – pretty happy with how it turned out!
