Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

How macro photos play with your sense of scale.

Here are a few photos of my Euphorbia Griffith’s Flame Flowers.

How big do you think this flower is? In a way the raindrop gives it some scale.

Below is a shot of my ‘Euphorbia martinii’. It is smallish (only 40 cm high) with purple leaves with the lime/red blooms showing up in April/May.
