Macro Shots of Roadside Wild Flowers

A beautiful Sunday afternoon...I was doing some repotting under the porch awning. WB was outside the gate watering his bougainvilla plants and he saw this beautiful wild flowers by the drain. He told me that he has something interesting to show me and gosh I was really amazed and decided not to let go this opportunity. Went in and took out my Nikon D3200 with my Raynox macro dcr250 and started shooting away. Managed to get a few nice ones .  Still not very good but I would say the shots were not bad too considering the fact that I am a newbie in macro photography :)  

The flowers are very tiny. 1 cm diameter but beautiful purple in color..once fully bloom, it is white and light maroon in color.  Wild flowers are by wind pollination. I don;t know the name of this wild flowers. If you know please leave me a comment with the name of this flower. Thank you in advance if you chance to see this post of mine.

I am amazed how beautiful these flower can be
beautiful strands of silky hairs that will open up
like a silky  ball
