It seems, in that respect, flies are not so different from most human couples.
vz-nostalgia: And who said they are different, Ray? smile

Lol at Ray- he is the speci on that 'field'!- a beautiful fine sensual pic! The times of duel are passé, but a menage a trois should not be recommended. I hope the beautiful fly (she/he has my sympathy) will fly away and look for another one...! Yes, "silence" is often the best weapon we have!
vz-nostalgia: What do you have against ménage à trois, if all the parties involved are in agreement, Ms. Philine? smile

Makes me think of that rhyme - "One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead men stood up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot one another."

There's more but can't remember.
vz-nostalgia: hahaha
Early in the morning in the middle of the night,
two dead boys got up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other
drew their swords and shot each other
a deaf policeman heard the noise
and came and killed the two dead boys
He took them in to court and said
these two boys I have found dead.
"Next to silence, that which comes closest to expressing the inexpressible is music" (A. Huxley).

I wonder which you prefer? I know which I prefer. smile
vz-nostalgia: "Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent." (Victor Hugo) smile
I know which I prefer too.

The flower caught my eye, as it's one I've seen before.
vz-nostalgia: It caught your eye, because you've already seen it before. hmmm...I'm not sure I follow your logic here, Ms. Aussie. Do you have dogwoods in Australia?
There is a sense of brooding about this Vik
vz-nostalgia: You bet there is, Chris.

Please excuse my lapse. There should have been a never in there. Either way you captured it so well.
vz-nostalgia: Now it makes sense. I was surprised that you have dogwood trees in Brisbane. smile
Very beautiful photo and flower!
Thanks for your participation on Ecological Day!
My kind regards,
Sonia.
vz-nostalgia: My pleasure, Ms. Sonia. If I have a choice to participate in one Day, it would be the Ecological Day! smile

I wish that humans could be silent in their dueling. mal
vz-nostalgia: I am all for, Mal. The question is, can we still call it a duel, if it's silent? smile

Dogwood trees are one of the two* reasons why I think God favors the South.

Nice image, good composition however I think brighter highlights on the petals would make the fly stand out more. Just a thought.




(*Southern women being the other!)
vz-nostalgia: Hahahaha. Could not agree with you more on both accounts, Lee.
I agree, brighter petals could bring the flies to stand out more, but I was losing the texture of petals, when I was cranking up the brightness and contrast. I decided to leave it alone as is.
