I am still learning macro. If you see the black dot on the right? it was my object, at first. Since the dot errrr ant was happy to wander and I couldn’t follow it so i change the focus: the bud.
Magnoliaceae is one of ancient species. It obvious characteristic (based on observation and my guru) is the ring scar. Sometimes I got confuse with Moraceae (fig family). This Magnolia has red axilary bud and reddish petiole. Perfect.
