So beautiful I can hardly stand it. I love to see the light coming through the petals and you captured it perfectly! btw, do you back up your blog every time you change your header? I'm always a bit scared to change my header and hate backing up. Seems so time consuming. But I'm sure glad you do it, cuz it's so fun and you have gorgeous photos!!

Dog-gone Sandra, those are breathtaking! You need to frame some of those, the colors are so bright, I can see the hairs on the cone in the middle.

We had sun yesterday and today, its so bright in my house, I need to take my camera outside like you are doing before the rain comes back. Thank the lord fo rthe SUN.

Very fiery flower!

Just simply glorious!

Ginny said...

This is really awesome! It looks like the dead of night and you are holding a flashlight behind it! What is the white fairy dust on the bud? I love that last whole photo too. The leaves and buds are almost as pretty as the flower. The leaves look like you waxed them with Pledge!! Also I love the shot of the long bud just ready to open, it looks like rolled up crepe paper.

Your macros are out-of-this-world gorgeous! I still can't do that....wahhh!
I think I need a different camera, all the stuff I've read online says that many other people have difficulty with macro, too. With my particular camera, that is.
Your shots are awesome! Love them!
