This week’s photo challenge is about perspective: post a photo which is not what it seems to be. Make sure you share what the photo actually is of in its caption! For those who are looking for an extra bit of challenge, show us two photos, each one showing a different angle or interpretation of the same subject:
The bougainvillea are blooming, and everywhere you go there are masses of color in people’s yards.
But, closer inspection shows the actual flowers – tiny white ones within the color.
Tiny flower buds within the pink bracts.
A close view of a tiny white flower.
This tall cane is seen a lot around here, and is often used for animal feed. I liked this red colored cane so I brought some home for our yard (much to the amusement of my neighbors)
The cane has some delicate looking plumes at the top, which on closer look are quite interesting.
A close look at the detail of the plume. Are these flowers or seeds?

Your favorite, bougainvillea I see. Pretty as always. 🙂
Actually it’s the most accessible. It belongs to the neighbor but a lot of it hangs over my fence in a spot that’s good for photos 😀
So pretty! I loved all the bouganvilla everywhere. Makes me eager to get there!
You’ll love summer then. There is every color of bougainvillea and many of them are spectacular! One of my favorites is a very interesting one called “una supresa” that has hot pink and white on the same plant, often on the same branch. I should share some photos of that one…
The pink ones were my favorite! I also loved all the colors of hibiscus. I saw colors I didn’t even know existed.
Oh yes, there are some beautiful ones here. I have one in my yard but the dang iguanas keep nibbling on the leaves.
That’s so funny! I had no idea iguanas even ate that.
Yes, and they ate my chayote too. I’ve also caught squirrels eating the hibiscus. We can eat hibiscus too http://www.hiddenvalleyhibiscus.com/misc/edible.htm
Very cool! I do cake decorating as s hobby and I did know of some other flowers that are edible. I will have to add hibiscus to my list. I did have deep fried squash flowers in Japan that were battered with tempura. They were surprisingly good.
Wow, hibiscus on a cake. That would be beautiful. I’ve heard about fried squash flowers but never tried them.
Or on cupcakes…
Wow! The center of that bougainvillea looks like a petunia! Very nice.
You’re right! Yes it does. Thanks 🙂
