Flower Power and shooting birds

Virtually daily I picture flowers in our garden and every now and than I also shoot a bird. Here in Stanford, South Africa people are privileged to have a year-round floral display but not many are seemingly aware of this heavenly gift. Many people never look into a flower. With software (in our case Adobe Photoshop CS6) I am able to inverse the different parts of a flower an use these as elements in my imaginaries. Here a few of  yesterday’s shots; in the future you might recognize details. Click thumbnails for enlargement.
