Macro photography/001- Bitter leave
Hello, this is my first time to post here, and from now on, I would be sharing with you my macro shots.
The picture above is herb discerned as bitter leaf (Vernonia amygdalina). It is a shrub or insignificant plant that can attain 23 feet in length when completely developed.
Bitter leaf retains a grey or brown coloured bark, which has a jagged texture and is flaked. The herb is one of the most popular indigenous African plant; which thrives in most parts of sub-Saharan Africa.
The East African country of Tanzania is traditionally connected to this plant and can be found prospering wild along the edges of agricultural fields.
It is a medicinal plant and fresh bitter leaf is of great significance in human nourishment because of the presence of chemicals like vitamins and mineral salts contain in it.
