Agapanthus once again, this time captured indoors by the kitchen window. A storm had blown this stem down and I thought I'd keep it alive a little longer in a glass. I noticed the back lighting effect and grabbed the camera. The bg is once again black card darkened in PS. Agapanthus blue often turns to shades of purple and lilac as the flowers mature which I think shows well in this image.

Thanks to all who called in to view, comment. vote for my previous image. Greatly appreciated.
