Project Black - Take 4

Remember the movie Antz? Ok I have to admit there is very little black in this shot but when I saw the itty bitty black ants I knew I had my next "movie" shot. This was taken this morning at the Springfield Xeriscape Garden which is fast becoming my favorite place to take pictures.

The flower is known as a Red Hot Poker.

Great photo. The black background really makes the yellow pop and then the little black spots of antz show up so clearly.

I see some black and the yellow flower is gorgeous.

I like your movie themes! Sure, there's more yellow here than black, but who can blame the ants for picking a spectacular background when they get their portrait taken?

Carletta said...

Antz - yep!

Great shot of the little guys roaming around.

I see the black! Great Mike, I have never seen one of these!

Raven said...

Whoa! How cool. If you hadn't said those were ants, I would have thought pretty picture with black plant tips and thought it was part of the plant. This is an awesome shot.

Oh brilliant! I love the angle of the shot, I need to take more photos of this flower before they go out of season!

I really love that you have to seek out the black in the photo. I always tend to go for the obvious.

Hey, I think I just learned something!
