Yarrow Leaf

Macro and Micro Picture of the Day 2020-03-05

Here is a yarrow leaf, which is quite hairy. Yarrow has been used since ancient times to stop the flow of blood from a wound. In the Middle Ages it was used to flavor beer before the use of hops. The leaves are used by Taoists for divination.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm) on a 49 mm long extension tube.
