Shadow Shot Sunday - Camera Critters - and Today's Flowers too

Make Time for Small Reflections

A while back I asked
what these flowers might be called
... now I think I know

African Iris
(also Fortnight Lily) so
I am most relieved!

If you embiggen
you will see a tiny ant
visiting this bloom

and of course Molly
managed to get 'captured' with
these shadowed blossoms.

and for others participating in Camera Critters, Today's Flowers,
Shadow Shots at Hey Harriet

This is my 76thMisty Dawn started the meme and explains the rules here.
You'll find a variety of birds at Happily Retired Gal
in another Camera Critters post this week.

Thanks to Harriet for hosting this nifty Shadow Shot activity
and for sharing this kewl award with all SSS participants.

Those used to be my favorite flowers. I haven't seen one in years.

Just like Martha said...

What great SS - oh and Molly is very cute!

Nice collage! I'm glad you named that flower. I have some in my yard and I haven't got a clue where they came from because I didn't plant them. :-) They're very pretty.


Nice to see you again Molly!

Pamela said...

a flying ant? Or is that a fly and I'm missing the ant because I need to put on stronger glasses?

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Pretty flowers and beautiful puppy!

A lovely collage! It's always nice to see Molly in there somewhere. I enjoy seeing the non-posed shots of her wandering around wherever you're doing something.

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.
