Difficult to choose between the two shots. Liked both

V2 has a nice little bee on it. Both great shots.
These are both lovely, Herman. I prefer the composition in V1, but I cannot resist the wasp (?) in V2. Great capture.

Two great shots here, i see they are not as colourful as the "bird of paradise" flower.

I love wasp too so my favourite has to be V2.

My Dutch friend Marijke had these in her garden here in Spain and they are enormous!

For it's composition I prefer V1, Herman. But that's a very obliging little visitor in V2! SmileSmile

Morning Herman...3rd day of constant rain in Durban...
Two pretty images but has to be V2 with the little bee...GrinGrin
19 Oct 2013 7:19AM
Very interesting, there is one near us and I always thought it was a banana. V2 for me mainly because of the bee.

Both look great to me Herman - never seen one of these before although I can see the close relation to the Bird of Paradise. Great shots. Smile

Morning H. Unusual flower with an unusual name, V1 looks like a crazy sailboat, V2 like a bird pecking away at the stem.
(or perhaps i'm bonkers and just seeing things). Either way, nice work mate.

Looks striking against the blue sky, Herman.

You have done well to control the exposure so well against that bright sky Herman - would have been easy to underexpose

Ooo...very nice. I've never seen this type of Strelitzia before, Herman. Fascinating.

Two excellent shots of it. Especially the one in V2 with the little bee as a bonus too Grin
