  3. As others here except Anders I am speechless. Wonderful shots all of them, I am useless at thinking of superlatives when viewing photographs and my vocabulary escapes me trying to think of anything else to say but lovely. Thank you Mitch for the great selection to my theme.

  4. So many wonderful photos. I love the Flamingo and the intense colour of the feathers. I thought the calendula was a bunch of bananas - a real burst of yellow. the bud is beatutiful, the birth of colour. also the other photos are great, all up to the Mitch standard of quality.

    1. Thanks Pat :-)) I think the flamingo is one of the best shots I've taken of a bird. I was lucky that he was standing in front of a very dark background, which helps the colour stand out more.

    1. Thanks Debby :-)) Yeah, it took a while. The hardest one was for 'indigo'........had to search for quite a while for that one.
