Wild Flowers

I had these flowers with me this morning, alone in the jungle.

The off-the-trail journey had me exploring the jungle as though it was solely mine.

Actually I was partially wrong, I could see some visitors who were having different interest around the corner. The up-close look exposed their presence. I am off from my routine work; today is Labour Day. But the black ants were still busy at work. Their government must have forgotten to declare this public holiday.

These wild flowers chose to live close to each other. Their squeezed and distorted shapes have not reflected the vastness of the rainforest.

Wow, those are luscious. I like the two that are so close together. They balance each other.

The colour is great in deed. Floral images are sometimes very hard to perfect. Colour purple is very hard to render well on dSLR

I've been taking extra time to look at flowers recently so this is perfect for me right now. I like seeing the details that a closeup like this gives. From here I can see that the petals have stripes. I can even see the pattern on the leaves.

Wow, those photos are lovely, and the color purple is so pretty sitting among the greenery!

Glad you had the day off and had a chance to get off the beaten path. Lovely flowers. I won't ask what they are, I'd rather you go out and find us some other pretties :)

Sharkbytes: Two make the balance and it is so astonishing to find all of them come in pair.


betchai: I shall see two little cute kids sit side by side and cheeks to cheeks.

roentarre: I am always inspired by your photography tips found in your post.

Ratty: Closeup view allows us to see more that we have not seen by bare eyes. It likes a magnicient glass we used in school time.

Icy BC: May the flower as lovely as you.

Hahaha...

The Retiredn One: I might have the closeup view but I failed to get near the flower. Should try on next trip for other place.

WiseAcre: I thought you would have helped me to name the flower. Hahaha....

Lovely... I like your observation of their close proximity to one another within such a vast space.
