LOL! Well, it depends...looks eerily similar to one of those toys you see at those "romance" parties! Hee hee hee.
oh my word, those shots are beyond beautiful!!am loving your photography!
through the winter...everything starts looking phallic as we pine for spring...hahaha
And you'd know this because???
I'm speechless. That's a first. :) Thank you for sharing at Your Sunday Best, Cheryl!
simply beautiful would be my vote!
Thanks for hosting. Speechlessness can be a good thing, right?
Thank you. Really caught my eye then it captured my imagination.
very beautiful! :) http://tinaspicstory.blogspot.com/2012/02/29-days-18-schnee-von-gestern.html
Simply twisted, Cheryl. I wouldn't have thought phallic at all if you hadn't mentioned it. LOLK
Lovely bud I can't wait to see them flowering again.
Very beautiful, in all versions.
Gorgeous absolutely gorgeous
Phallic or not, it's plain gorgeous!=)
I don't know which one. All I know is that it's beautifull :) Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
Oh My! - Well I'm voting for Gorgeous (it's the safer choice) and it really is a lovely bud.
THey are all lovely but I think I like the "cropped" the most. Such a beautiful spiral.
Thank you. I loved the striping.
Once I pulled it up on the screen, it just kind of jumped off the screen and screamed at me really loudly. I could not make it stop or do anything to make it less erectile.
Thanks Sue. Either way, I really liked it too.
It's always better to err on the side of caution around here.
Right back atcha!
Thank you Saun.
Thank you so much.
Oh, me too Maia. Me too.
É uma flor muito bonita. Amei as fotos!
I think it looks twisted--in a really cool way!
aren't flowers the "sex" organs of plants? the whole attraction and pollination thing ??... and yes, a bit of both, and beautiful at the same time
Just plain gorgeous!
Hmmm . . . I say the flower's phallic and you're slightly twisted!
Excelentes macros de bela flor....Cumprimentos
I LOVE Morning Glories, but they are SO invasive! Lovely shot! Thanks for coming by 'The View From Right Here' for a visit... ;-)
The most beautiful thing in the Universe. It's not a phallic symbol and it's not a swirl. It's a 3D spiral, the epitome of fractal law (the mathematical law in physics which guides anything organic to grow), the most ancient human symbol (since prehistorical times). The glory of our Maker, if you're a believer.
Great macro shots.
Beautiful macro photos, especially I like the last one.Regards and best wishes
either way, it is beautiful
Ha! At least someone's been paying attention. ::snort::
Erm, that's different! Your comment list is working backwards! And I, you know - ultra observant me, go down the list step by step clicking 'Load more comments' thinking to myself 'At some point I'm going to reach a box down the bottom!' until, eventually... DOH! Wha'sit doing up here?Now, about your post... Erm... I've forgotten the question.
Whichever it is, I suspect it was a gorgeous purple when it opened! :)
What! How'd that ^ ^ happen?
Sorry for the confusion. Playing around with new technology. This is what it looked like wide open.
Thank you Tatjana. After playing around with it, I found I liked that last one too.
It is all that, isn't it?
From early spring until late fall, I'm plucking the new plants before they can get big enough to strangle my ever-blooming rose.
Aha! Are you a closet botanist? It's all just pistils and stamens to me.
Thanks Cheryl. I hadn't noticed until I pulled it up on the screen. (Yes, I have way too many photos.)
Isn't nature magnificent? I'm sure you don't have the same problem I have (so many pictures you haven't even looked at most of them since the day you took snapped 'em). ::snort::
a beautiful bud. .)
"rotating" ?LOLAloha from WaikikiComfort Spiral >< } } ( ° >
Indeed! Good catch, Cloudia.
LOL! Mama Zen took the words right off my keyboard! But we mean it in the most loving way possible. Anyway, lovely bud. ;-)
Both ;-) Gorgeous work. Morning glories are very special to me. My volunteer indigo ones who showed up one year and now are all over used to be my avatar when I first started Life is Good.
