Bright and Beautiful?


Camellia Sasanqua


Azalea


Geranium in a nearby garden


Something rather interesting at the local Art Gallery


Miss O having a closer look




Last, but not least, a bright little grasshopper.

Sharing at This or That Thursday.

Na krześle to chyba krasnoludki siedzą :-). Wielkie kwiaty i konik polny wyglądają ślicznie. Pozdrawiam ciepło. *** The chair is probably dwarfs sitting :-). Great flowers and grasshopper so pretty. With best wishes.

That's an azalea? Wow, I need to take a closer look at mine....once they bloom. Beautiful photos! Love the grasshopper!

Such stunning shots. You obviously have the gift of really seeing. I need to slow down a little and cultivate that in myself.

You're inspiring!

Yes, they are bright and beautiful. And that little grasshopper all set to begin munching on them.

Jan said...

Wonderful photos as always, wondering what type of camera you use, and if it is fiddly, or 'point and shoot', which is about all I can manage.
Love, Jan

LadyFi said...

Love the little grasshopper, looks like he is watching you:)

forgetmenot said...

How do you do it !!!! Those photos are just amazing. Your girls look like they are enjoying their visit to the museum- always lots to see there. Have a terrific weekend. Mickie :)

Ocean Soul said...

The azalea looks like it is sticking out its tongue (stamen)! And what a fun art gallery! And did you use your black cloth behind the grasshopper or how did you get the fabulous black backdrop?

Pieces of Sunshine said...

There was a shady green bush behind the zinnias and when using the macro conversion lens the background is somewhat blurred anyway. So all I had to do was increase the contrast and adjust the levels (darken) a little in iPhoto to give a black background.

Pia said...

This chair is worth to have a closer look, great decoration!
And your flower and critter shots... as ever.... just stunning!

Liebe Grüße,
Pia

Branson said...

Do you have giants in Australia? :))

Amazing shots of the flowers. Cheers, Ruby

Cathy said...

I love seeing the bright little grasshopper sitting on the pink blossom almost as much as I love seeing the lovely maidens posing on the purple chair!

These flowers are just STUNNING! I love the tall iron chair with the hummingbird motif, too.
