i'm definitely in the mood for finding mini sized stuffs (practice ng macro shooting :D) i took this shot today while tidying up the toy vehicles at the playground (part time janitress :D). i've been wanting to have a picture of the makahiya flower and so i took the opportunity. although i am not really sure if this is the flower (bud?!) but still i am quite happy with this picture. i just have to crop the picture for a closer look at it. this plant reminds me of my childhood days ( i am not shy, naghahabol lang palagi ng makahiya sa damuhan :D).
note: makahiya is an herb pala (i didn't know this :D). the leaves close up in various stimuli, such as touching, and shaking. and can be transmitted to its neighboring leaves. it's called seismonatic movements or reaction to physical shock. in the evening, he leaflets will fold together and the leaf will drop downwards, this is called nyctonastic movement or reaction to absence of light. it re-opens at sunrise. it's also a medicinal plant.
