Wow, what a plethora of visitors you get to your bougainvillea, Carol.
Flies, Butterflies - and - even a Praying Mantis. A fantastic collection.
And... this relative newbie has only just discovered "Saturday Shadows" Grin
It's certainly been an educational visit!

An excellent montage in V1. I look forward to our bougainvilleas supporting such a variety of wildlife and me being there to capture it all.

I love V2, very striking and arty.

V2 very creative and clever Carol. V1 full of superb images. I love the light on the butterfly top left but the others are great too.

What a great idea in V1 - strictly visitors to the bougainvillea! Beautiful shots in that montage too.

But your shadow shot is what really grabs me, Carol. Not just nice dark shadows set against that palm frond but also such brilliant composition and patterning! Awesome SmileSmile

Brilliant images, Carol ! V1 is a magical bougainvillea bucket of collage images and V2 a fabulous capture in the perfect angle bringing in front all the great details, textures and geometrical lines of the leaf creases along with the beautiful shadows!SmileSmileSmile
These images really deserve many awards, Carol !

Two very different uploads here, Carol, but both equally delightful; in V1 we have a very thoughtfully put together montage, and in V2 a cracking abstract shot, complete with shadows! Excellent work Smile
