Firewood Banksia (Banksia menziesii)
The seeds of this tree are only released when the fruit head has been burned, the winged seeds then soar on the hot winds. The flowers of this tree have more colour variants than any other member of the genus; they can be pink, yellow, white, brown or green.
Taken from Levon's latest body of work titled The Hidden Beauty of Seeds and Fruits, these macro photographs display the Carpology collection of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

The images presented allow the audience to appreciate and study these tiny specimens in levels of detail normally only available with the use of microscopes. Using his photo stacking techniques and bespoke camera system, Levon was able to capture unprecedented levels of detail far too small to view with the naked eye providing us with an insight into an unseen world.
