Using a wideangle lens to photograph flowers will show the habitat in which they grows as well as the plants themselves. This provides the viewer of the picture more information about the plant than a formal portrait.

 

 

Below are a couple of pictures of Golden Samphire flowering on the rocks above the high tide area on Gower, Wales. Using the Canon EF 17mm - 40mm f4L zoome lens I am able to show the flower growing in it's habitat.
