A recent photo of June 11th. A red dragonfly (300 mm macro at ISO 200, f 5.6 and 1/1000th of a second shutter time) on the side of the pond in my wife's garden:



Second a photoshopped version of my Poppy Field photograph (see below). When I saw the photograph on my monitor for post processing I couldn't help making the connection with World War I. I mixed the poppy field with a picture of a military World War I cemetary and titled it "In Flanders Fields".



this is the original photo:

In Beijing there are many things that are red, gates, bridges, doors, temples. These are flags flying at Tiananmen Square.

Love the Reds. Nice sunset Platinum. I definitely like your "flander's field" photo Hans, and your dragonfly is topnotch. Pam I love that mass of red in the clemens garden. I'm going to get a whole bunch of Astilbe in one color to plant around the septic tank access tiles.

Impressive red sky indeed from Plat.

And blondmom, I miss the blue bear... I very much enjoyed the set of photos Pam had of him Is this bear as adventurous?

Without the cute bear the photo with ultra red roses and ultra yellow bench would be pretty artistic!

Come on folks, where are your photos?? This is not a difficult subject surely?

Looks like an azalea, but I'm not a horticultural expert.

Boris de Bear started traveling with us about the time Ted stopped. I honestly can't remember why I don't take him places anymore. Probably time for him to come down off his shelf and get out a little more often.

Ever since I resd about Theodore E. Bear I have a particular soft spot for blue bears. Other colours are so,... so 'common'

Well, I looove red so was looking forward to seeing people's entries. I have to say they're all stunning pics, but my absolute fave HAS to be the dragonfly. I dont' see any here, and have never seen one that vibrant! I would love some like that in my little local marsh

Kevia, good job with the new camera.
AnnMarie, it looks like an azalea to me also. I have one it blooms that color on Mother's day and is hence called a "Mother's Day Azalea"
And yes Boris can be quite adventurous.

Now, this is the third try. I saw the Red Queen as a street performer at the 2009 Tauranga Arts Festival.
