Plants doing the nasty. Where is that
Archbishop and what is he doing about
the exploitation of plants.

All flowers will need to be displayed
with blue dots.

Phenomenal pic, Jams. - On top of a hill, inmidst the forest we have a 'snowflake-meadow' in our neighbourhood, and at least once in March we'd visit 'our' Märzbecherwiese. Wonderful!

THanks everyone!

SOrry I should have said. Sophie thanks I wi;; return the compliment.

Andree I must admit there is a bit of manipulation but the effect is achieved by stopping down the lens as far as possible and shooting with flash.

Beaman said...

Wonderful form against the black background.

Flowers similar to this only have about a 6 week growing season before the Houston heat and humidity strangles the life out of them(and the humans).

It's a gorgeous flower!

jams o donnell said...

It's a beauty but definitely for cooler climates..
