What a striking mix of colours!
😀 You’d be surprise to see it is even more striking in black & white.
I really do think I would.
How beautiful. That’s a lovely shot Paula.
Thank you Deb. I liked your interesting post too 🙂
Beautiful shot and love the music! 🙂
Much appreciated Linda. That piece of music just mellows my heart 🙂
beautiful 🙂 is it a little orchid?
today I have a little flower too share too
we’re doing flower power 🙂
That orchid (which I believe it is) is captured very beautifully. Amazing colours and forms.
Your guess is right Otto 🙂 I am very grateful for your comment and visit 🙂
Wow that is some capture… love it…
Paula, I’m not really a fan of flower shots, macro or otherwise. But I do like the music you chose! OK, I did like the image too. But only because it has purple in it- my late mother-in-law’s favorite color! 🙂
It’s OK Emilio 😀
I thought to myself ‘it’s Thursday- must be a Paula day’, and here you are! The beauty of that reflected image and the oh so delicate music has soothed my soul, Paula. This is some of your best work ever. I LOVE it! 🙂
You are right – it is some of my best yet 😀 and this is my flower sign too 😉 Thank you kindly Jo. I am happy to bring you some joy that early in the morning. Back to work – ttfn

Perfect music for this delicate orquidea ……
So it’s your sign flower! Nothing more appropriate ….
The capture is Incredible!
Grazie mille Anna 🙂 Yours is Morning Glory 🙂 It says:” I bring you clarity” 🙂
Good to know! Thank you Paula

Petalled hearts whatever they leads you they are often so fascinating
that you forget what your mother (or father) told you… 😉
Very well captured… 🙂
Oh wow, they´re so pretty, well captured, Paula!
😀 Another compliment from a master 🙂 Thank you, Ron. I hope you are still having fun in KL?
Haha, don´t flatter me too much, i might get lazy in improving and learning, Paula 😉
Everything great here, also making small phototrip next week, so planning ahead!
Everything ok in Zagreb?
😀 Where is the trip to? I hope you will take as many stunning pics as you have planned and I look forward to seeing them. I am slaving, and will be slaving some more before my trip to Slovakia on the 20th July – that will be a well earned break 😀
Ah, slaving sucks, what is your line of job, if i may ask?
Going for 2 days to an old tin mining area and old city in middle of Malaysia, great limestone cliffs and jungle there too 😉
Well, almost weekend and 20th is getting closer too 🙂
Translator for a big, national company that is about to sack the rest of staff and sell everything ( I am helping in sale by translating all contracts and legal documents – which is making me sick of course). The schedule has been 10 or more hours a day weekends included for the past few weeks and will go on till holidays….
Holy C, that sucks and pretty depressive subject too! Can imagine you´re looking forward to holiday 😉
Good luck amigo, hope time flies for you and your well deserved holiday will come as fast as possible!
Thank you for encouragement Ron 🙂
So gorgeous, Paula. Love the gentle music which perfectly suits the orchid flower. xx
A cover by Piano brothers of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years”. Sylvia, thank you for bringing me more joy with your visit. xx

Lovely photo Paula. Do you grow these?
Yes, I do.. so far only one petal has died 😀
Then you must have a green thumb.
On the contrary :D. My thumb is entirely black, that’s why I am in a hurry to immortalise their beauty through camera 😀
A fantastic shot Paula! The details when enlarged are stunning, and the music is perfectly chosen. Joining in this week with this: http://theurgetowander.com/2014/06/26/a-monkey-parade/
Thank you so much Madhu for these little angels, though I am sure they are more ruscals than angels – a little Hanuman is so endearing. I am happy you liked my orchid macro :). I love macro photography and will try to dedicate more time to it.

Paula, super photo, the depth of field is great, and I can almost feel the velvety texture of the petals with the fingers of my eyes.
Here’s one from me for this week.
“My What Big Wings You Have!” Exclaimed Goldilocks to the Swan
What a beauty…
Stunning and sensual . I don’t know if I have any petal pix……
Beautiful shot Paula. What is it? Even my resident horticultural expert was hovering between pea and orchid. I’m always torn between naming and admiring: admiring is much easier!
It’s an orchid, Meg 🙂
Lovely orchid. They’re a bit difficult to keep, but once I had one that got 13 flowers!
🙂 wow. This one has 12, but I only got it and I have no idea how long it will live and if I will be able to bring it back to life.
Mine had 2 when I got it, then the flowers died and it just looked like a pathetic stick for a looong time. All of a sudden it got 13 flowers at once.
When at first the flowers died did you cut off the branches and added fertilizers once a month?
No, I basically didn’t care about it at all. I just watered it every now and then, so it was some sort of miracle: like some orchid Jesus the plant rose from the dead, danced around and went up to heaven.
In the end I threw it away after it had died again, mainly because of the extreme disappointment and depression it led to when I realized that my orchid Jesus plant couldn’t turn water into wine…
😆 you hatter 😀
Bonita foto, bonita flor!
Agora esta morta.
