I did not see the visitor on it until I downloaded the image on my computer Smile
V2 - Only information - no artistic value here Smile Some asked about the size of the poinsettia bush from the red one I uploaded two days ago Smile here are the white and red ones from which I got my photos.
I really do appreciate every vote and comment on my Cape Robin images and thanx Jukka for the mod Smile

I like both shots Herman. I wonder if I'd get away with planting. Poinsettia in Spain. Must ask the gardener.

Like Carol, I too was visualising a small plant and I don't think I have come across a white one before. All I know about Poinsettia is that once the red leaves have gone; if you keep them in a dark place, the red leaves will come back for next year, but sadly most people just through them away.................... In the UK they are a house plant, that's why I know a little bit.

You have two friends in V1...................... two magic images and once again you have taught me something.

I much prefer the pale lemon poinsettias to the red ones, Herman, so different and a much more gentle colour. V.1 shows it off so well, and V.2 gives an excellent idea of how large these plants can grow. Carol

I like the criss cross effect of the leaves, it creates a nice pattern while the fly adds an extra focal point. The greens are so muted and the image all about pattern so I imagine you could make a fine mono conversion out of this. Smile

Hi Herman, two nice shots, we dont get these as big as yours, at Christmas the shops are full of them her but only as pot plants for inside your house. And they are very difficult to keep, every one i have had has died within a few weeks
