I don't know what they are, but they are beautifully colored! Nice shot.
Happy Hunting. Mine is up here.

Nice shot! Love all the different extensions of the petals and the leaves.

Here's mine . . .

Flo said...

Since I live in Hawaii this was too easy :)

Mine is up over at Flo's Place

Sandy said...

Excellent shot.

This is without a doubt one of the best photo's I've seen so far for today's theme. Very colorful. The multitude of almost straight lines in the subject is compelling.

Good job.

Nicely photographed. I always found Bird of Paradise to be such an intriguing flower. My mother often used them in flower arrangements.

Such a great play of vibrant shades of orange, reds, greens, even some purple and blues... very nice!

In contrast, you would find my very first photo hunt entry- dark as night! see mine at:


to guess what it is... :-)

Randi, June, Karen, Eaglehawk, thanks.

Crazy working Mom, they're flowers but called Birds of Parasise.

Flo, I want to go back and take more pictures.

Sandy, I don't know. These are cut items being sold at a store.

Baker Watson, thanks for the compliment. It made me smile.

Katney, the nice thing about them is that they don't wilt right away.

Admin, will go visit now. Been swamped with work and family matters.
