Bashful Borage

Have you ever tried to photograph a borage flower? I believe borage flowers are bashful. They like to keep their heads down and not look directly at the photographer. To capture the face of a borage flower the photographer almost needs to be an acrobat.

First, the borage plants aren’t very tall and the flower stems are short. To look the flower in the face, the camera has to be aimed up. Aiming the camera up from a height of four to six inches is quite a trick if you have arthritic knees and find it hard to get up from the ground if you can even get down on it.

Since the borage flowers won’t look me in the eye, I will punish them. I will pick them, rinse them, and throw them in my salad. Then I can put their heads up before I devour them.
