Color or Black and White

Friends, a very common orange monarch butterfly on purple/pink blazing star, i really dont like these colors together, i think they clash as my mother used to say when i would try to wear these colors as a teenager.  I know that clothing theory is foreign to todays’ youngsters, but in my days it was a taboo if you wanted a sophisticated look.  But I still don’t like these colors together, is the answer to present this image in black and white values.  I like it better, what do you think? the black and white is below, til Tomrrow MJ


Blazing star detail

Friends, this blazing star is now in bloom at Crex and this image is a close-up magnification of the one inch buds, the details are hidden when all the little flowers are open by the mass of purple styes so one needs to see at the earliest stage of blooming to see the tiny blooms. i love the macro approach so i can see the substructure of things. Guess that is why i was a microscopist in another life, seems like a very long time ago. Only six years ago but seems forever, I am much happier now til Tomorrow MJ
