Fireworks flowers they look like :)
Fantastic photo, as usual, Jams. The black backdrop really makes the details pop. Love it.
I just adore that black background!
Great shot! do u take pictures at night? i'm really curious about the black background!
I was at our annual National day fireworks and these look just like the exploding fireworks! Happy WW, Jams!
Great shot, Jams. Even past their prime they are beautiful.
I love the flower on the right against the blackground. It has just a hint of blue or purple in it. Very nice!
I love these flowers. Sometimes when we plant them in gardens people are like "don't plant a Thistle" but then they see that this a refined and beautiful one.
Beautiful! Looks like two eyes glowing in the dark.
My first thought was "how'd you light those dandelions to get that effect??". I've never heard of these, but the photo has a kind of mystical quality to it.Nicely done sir!And thanks for stopping by my place,-Mojo

Perverted middle aged capitalist photographers.... this is kinky flower sex, XXX rated.
How did you do that? It's impressive. I like how the black background reveals the image.

That's just like the weather here !BTW I wrote about the sister beauty contest yesterday and heard this morning it had been cancelled and his blog closed !
So Jams, with this post of flowers in decline, are you implying that summer is nearly over in your corner of the planet??
Great shot - love it!Perfect with the black background.
They look like Boston fireworks!
That's perfection, Jams!
Stunning photo.WW by Simone's Butterfly
Stunning Jams! I feel a faint breeze in the air...soon the seeds will flutter by me...this photo is nearing poetic.
Even in "decline", they still have beautiful detail.
But it still looks gorgeous when you click on it!! By the way, if I remember well, you like otters huh? I've got two of the cutest little otters in my Wordless for you today! See you!
They still look lovely even though they already start to wilt.
I've never seen anything like that. How unusual. Happy WW!Cascia
Looks like fireworks!
Very cool! Looks like it was edited using photo shop to get those purple highlights. Love it! Thanks for stopping by to see my baby's bunny feet.
