More to come.........
Oh, so very beautiful! I could look at those pictures all day :)
Thanks for sharing these with us.
as seen thru the artists eyes... beautiful Naomi!
I see them often, but I never tire of them.
Huzzah! Another flower post, the beauty of which we can recall during the dark days of winter. Thank you, dear.
Breathtaking. Etheral. Enchanting. A visual elixer of beauty.
Thank you, dear friend, for posting.
the first shot almost looks like a shell. Every angle is stunning. They always surprise me at how hardy they are because they look so delicate.
I have never had an orchid flower but each time I see one now I think of you! They are so very lovely and unique in their shape. Now when I see them I stop and study them for awhile...again..thanks to you! With your posting photos of flowers so up close it has made me look at them more deeply than before. Not just orchids, but any flower. Thanks for sharing that gift Naomi! Hugs to you dear lady, and I hope Sweetie is doing well.
Yes, it is going to appreciate flowers over and over again :)
Your photos are like paintings Naomi. Any of those could be wall hangings. Just beautiful.
I love the macro shots you post, Naomi. Were your paintings like that?
When I see this much beauty in nature I have to believe in a God, in a design plan, or at the very least, that artists helped in the design of creation. It's all just so beautiful and breathtaking.
I just find those photos incredibly sexy. Of course it is a most wonderful flower but it takes a Naomi to really portray its beauty. I'm going back to have another look.
ok, first let me say that just this very moment i left pat's blog where i mention the magnificent crimson and purple sunset over the marshlands at my cottage at the beach - i click to come here - and voila! this magnificent crimson and purple orchid! a flowering synchronicity -
and now, to this breathtakingly beautiful floral goddess! what else is there to be said - very georgia o'k-ish [whose work i adore] and whose paintings of flowers are very very sensual and sexy [totally agree with pat] - fantastic images of yours of this gorgeous flower - thanks so very much for sharing, naomi!
have a glorious remainder of your california day!
What some beautiful shots, of a particularly lovely coloured bloom.
I love orchids, although here in the UK, we only see the cultivated varieties in pots.
There are some amazing colours and varieties available these days and they last such an amazingly long time. A much nicer gift than cut flowers to my way of thinking,and they flower so many times if cared for correctly.
It is of course, much nicer to see them growing wild, as with all things in nature.
What a lovely post,
Your photos are amazing, Naomi! Of course, orchids are beautiful but you've given us an upclose and personal view of this elegant flower showing us its beauty and shape as if we've just seen one for the first time. The colors are charming, my friend. Thanks for sharing! Hugs and besos to you!! xo
Beautiful.. Just amazing..
Beautiful photos, Naomi.
Photo #2 looks like a little creature face waking up, and #7 (third from the bottom) looks like a little frog with his frog legs dangling.
Your photos are gorgeous, Naomi!
Orchids are really a beauty of nature! What a stunning color!
I hope you have a pleasant day with lovely Sweetie!
