Das ist ein richtig hübsches Pärchen, finde ich. Manche von denen haben schon recht bizarre Formen. Und giftig sind sie auch. Die Serie ist jedenfalls richtig schön geworden!

Ich bin noch nicht fertig (auf jeden Fall nicht mit den Bildern :-) Die richtig hässlichen kommen noch :-)

Danke mal im Voraus Sonja :-) Gruß Bernd

Oh year you're definitely right Sandy!

It's 'the splits' between innocence & seduction.

Cheers, Bernd

That is a perfect way to discribe it....innocence and seduction...I like that :)

BL (Views? No, thanx… on April 12, 2009

Which of the both :-)))

More seduction I think...though it gives the impression of purity at first or innocence...until you look at it more closely...

You're definitely right Sandy! That's the way it goes; first one sees the beautiful composition of colors w/o further details. But as you 'zoom in' all the contrasted lines, little spikes, drop-like colored dots and wet effects scare you a little - Like 'the fat lady' in the after-opera-party :-)

Ha ha ...I don't think you should compare it to the fat lady....

Its definately not that scary ;)
