When the clock strikes 12h00…

I took these photographs on the same day… Believe it or not, but it is the same flower – – – when closed one cannot think that it opens up to become an unusual but beautiful flower!!! I did a post a while back called Flower Drops, with the same type of flowers, it had just rained and had droplets of water on its petals!!!

In the meantime… enjoy my ‘beauty in disguise’ flower!!!

    This is truly an example of beauty in disguise! One might simply pass the stalks by and miss the beauty that lies within after it blooms! Thank you for reading my post as well. Please stay in touch!

    Lovely. Anyone who would pass even the stalk by is just plain shallow. Creation is the most amazing thing in… Creation! 😀 Nice picture. The light is very nicely balanced.

      Thank you so much!!! At the moment I only have an 18-55mm canon EF lens!!! I am planning on expanding… but oi, photography is a pretty expensive hobby!!! – – – so for now, I am getting by with the standard lens!! Thanks for commenting!! 🙂 **

    a kit lens is well enough for most applications. i stand by the fact that, someone who cant get a nice shot with a kit lens, will do no better with more expensive glass. and you are definitely doing well considering your equipment. keep up the good work.

      Thank you very much!! Fortunately, I don’t see a kit lens as limiting… but I must admit, that sometimes I do think that another lens (especially macro) would open up another world for me!!! … but until then – – – I’m happily shooting away!! Thanks for the encouragement !! 🙂 **

    thats a stunning picture, very very nice. I also like the park bench shot.
    We have found that on the watermark issue, people crop it off and use the photos so dont be shy with the size. Many of our underwater shots have been used this way.
