The delicate and paper-thin transparency of the bougainvillea blossoms are bountiful in our dry winter conditions. But beware of their long, spiky and dangerous thorns that take pleasure in puncturing the human skin - especially as one tries to trim them! Nature continues to amaze with her elements of contrast...even all humans have their elements of beauty and defense mechanisms - just a matter of balance again! Naples, FL


  1. This is gorgeous! What's the background?

  2. The background is just a stucco wall painted and icy blue, but I think with macro setting it blurred nicely to set off the blooms!
