  2. Beautiful! What is the plant on the second photo with all the little reddish bead-like flowers?

    Angelina looks so coy! I love it when dogs pretend to be sleeping and then look up at you!

  3. No flower can steal the show from this playful look in Angelina's eyes. She is Holliwood ready! Great macro on that flower with the berry like clusters - I feel ready to chew some to try how they taste - hope they don't kill :)

  4. Of course I love the blue flowers! But I also love the purple cloud looking thing. :)

    That second shot, I have never seen anything like it, very unique. I like the texture.

  8. I do not know what is in that second photo. Berries? But the colour is strange for berries. I really like the first photo. The flowers look so pretty and bright. And of course, Angelina is sweet as always. Have a great day Prospero!

  13. Lovely flowers, beautiful colors and great light on the photos with yellow, pink and blue flowers! I also like the shadows on the photo with pink flower that looks like Petunia. When I came across Angelina; her cute face really made me smile.:-)

  14. Intrigued what the second one could be that resembles little pink trees. And the third one with the purple cloud keeps me guessing what time of day it was taken.

  21. These pictures are all beautiful. As much as I love the flower ones, it's the sky one that really draws me in.

  22. I can see why you picked the theme. Each picture seems to be holding back, just waiting to burst into full-blown movement!

    I especially like the purple flower with the shadows.

  23. Everyone has a distinct style and I really appreciate your photographic style. Thanks for stopping in on my site. I get a good picture once in a while but other wise I try hard. Design is very important and I can see you know your stuff.

  24. Regarding your comment:
    We had an invasion of Portuguese man of war at a beach a few kms north last week. They were by the thousands and the beach had to be closed for a few days! I've never heard of this before and I even think these waters are not their habitat! Very strange things are happening nowadays...

  25. The problem with your posts is deciding which one I like best! They are all great...but I really like and first and last, and of course, the wee little furry one!

  27. What wonderful photographs! My sissy Clytie is right--you ARE exceptionally gifted. These pictures filly my eyes.

    That is the greatest compliment I can give. When I see something beautiful, unusual or amazing, there's a tickling sensation in my eyes--like the pupils of my eye suddenly focus and sharpen in on what I see.

    Your work IS truly fabulous.

  28. Hi, I've been having internet problems - sorry I am late! These are such pretty photos and that Angelina is a baby doll! Harriet and I send a big wave to you both.

  42. Indeed! Clytie IS my real sister--she's the fourth down in a family of six children. I'm the eldest. (grin) She's been talking about your blog for the longest time--you've been a real inspiration to her--and now to me.

  43. oh, that purple wave of ecstasy! just being.

  44. Oh the one of Angelina just breaks my heart. I know she isnt all sad, probably just worn smooth out like I do my dog, Gracie, when we go on photo hunts but it just strikes such sad emotion to me. I guess that means its a fab photo!!
