The sun fell directly onto the stalk of this Heliconia rostrata inflorescence and made it glow beneath this black ant. It was such a lovely morning that day. Blue skies, birds chirping, glowing heliconias, contrasty ants...
...speaking of which, I applied contrast to this pic to see if it would make it better but it took something away from the fineness of the Heliconia's hairs. So I left this pic untouched.
