Incredible floral series. The reds are handled quite well and give off a certain sensual aura about them. Outstanding and thanks for posting.

Nice pix, Jer.

I like the 2nd one...looks like the stamens are floating in the air. At least, I think they're stamens... if I recall correctly, the stuff I learned about plants in my grade eight science classes. Although that goes back an awful long time and I could be in error.

Great clarity in these photos and 1,2 and 3 have a horn like appearance. Makes me wonder if early man got the idea for musical horns from looking at similar flora and from there.... inspiration flowed ? I don't know, just some speculation on my part...or maybe my mind is wandering again.

Thanks, Les. I like your comment regarding flowers as inspiration for musical instruments . . . . . . as speculations go, your idea hits just the right . . . . . . . note.
