Beautiful representation, Lars!

Angel's trumpet.  The shape is not necessarily weird, but its size is weirdly huge!  It is also toxic...

Many thanks Akira  :)
I like your Angel's trumpet surrounded by white orbs in the background. The flowers have a special scent with a citrus note - I live adjacent to a park that have small Angel's trumpet trees during summer and when I drive through the park on my bike in the evening the scent can be quite intense. There are both white and yellow and recent years also a mixed colour in yellow+red.

Thank you, Lars.  There are some angel's trumpet trees in my neighbors as well.  Their flowers are much smaller than the white ones, but the amount of the flowers blooming in one tree is insane!

I received today a Neewer carbon fiber tripod, rated 15kg, for under 80 euros... have to try. It does work with the d200 ir and 5300 ir. It is lightweith and sturdy enough for what I pretend to use it for. Small enough to fit in the motorcycle´s trunk -a must- So, I took it for a spin using exactly that combo and shutter speeds to give trouble: from 1/30s to 1s. It passed the test with flying colours. MLU and remote release.
  Here, a color floating flower. D200 Ir, 18-70mm

The Rape of Brassica. Seen through IR "goggles". Swell.

Thanks Birna. The color stain is actually another of the same flowers in front of the one in focus, very close to the camera. I didn't expect to look like this at all.

Bokeh has two aspects; in front and in the background. Sometimes the appearance of either is wildly different. Mostly a good thing, I think.

Love the composition and the stunning color!

Fons, this has great design and the placement of the focus is totally successful.

I like it; I'm still searching for a definitive dandelion-on-the-street shot in my neighborhood!
