Pretty Pink Flowers
Quite often, people come up to me and say… ‘Hey, Phil, I know you take some nice shots of birds and other wildlife but have you ever thought about taking flower photos? I bet you could take some nice ones!’
Ok, that’s totally made up, nobody ever says that to me, I came up with the idea all on my own.
This morning, since none of our pink spoonbill visitors were around, as soon as I spotted these lovely pink blooms at the edge of the marsh I figured this would be a great opportunity to try out flower photography. So here ya go, this is my experiment, hope y’all like it!
Oh, BTW… while I was there some alligator munched down a nice size flounder that he caught.
Nice captures. I do love the pink flowers
Well sure, you gotta love some nice pink flowers. 😀
Beautiful flowers, Phil. Pity Mr A photo bombed your shots. 😳
I’ll get him for that! 😡 Big Jerk.
Glad you liked the flowers though. 😀
Poor flounder. I think Mr A stole the glory. Not had time to say, but been loving your spoonbill photos, they are gorgeous.
Oh he insists on inserting himself into everything. Some day that smug attitude is going to catch up to him. (Don’t tell him I said that)
Glad you like the spoonies. Saw a couple this morning but they never came in close.
Cool post Phil. That inner journalism behavior coming out of ya.
Heh heh, thanks Ricky. I screwed up a bit on that second flower shot though. The gator ‘stole’ my focus. I meant to make the flowers sharp and let the gator go soft in the background. Oh well…
Actually, I thought the alligator made an interesting background to the pretty soft pink flowers.
It just enhanced the picture.
Well now don’t start complimenting him too much, he already thinks he’s such a big shot around there and if he hears people say he enhances a scene there will be no living with him. 😀
Yay for the pretty pink flowers, but knew you would get Mr. Gator involved at some point~!
Oh he always does, he can be sooooo annoying. But don’t tell him I said that. 😀
Mr A is a cheeky fellow taking over your photo.
He really is ! Such nerve
I think you and Mr A are an unbreakable partnership, Phil! I’d like to say he looks pretty framed by the flowers but …… (don’t tell him I said that!)
I try to go out and do something different and this is what happens. That boy needs a good talking to and I’m not letting on that you like his looks, he already has a smug attitude.
Never even noticed the gator I was so mesmerized by the flowers. Good thing you mentioned it.
Those flowers really are something special aren’t they?! Could be a whole new career path if those pesky alligators ever stop inserting themselves into my photos.
I like the lovely pink flowers along with Mr. A having a meal … great shots given that Mr. A managed to upstage things a bit!
He is a real sneak and always somehow manages to be the center of attention. That boy can be a real piece of work some time.
Glad you liked the photos. 🙂
