Macro and Micro Picture of the Day 2020-08-27

Here is spearmint (Mentha spicata) flower. Right click for full resolution. Spearmint hybridizes with water mint to make peppermint. Unlike peppermint, spearmint has almost no menthol, but instead has an abundance of carvone.

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