That Yellowness...


Folks the above image is that of a Yellow flower that grows in front of my house. If you take a closer look you would see a yellow butterfly enjoying its morning visit and having a feast of the nectar of that flower. Indeed it shows nature at its best. Have a nice day.

Pak Idrus,
The camouflage was perfect. I wouldn't have been able to discern the butterfly if you hadn't mention it.
Great observation.

Pak Zawi, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of this posting.

I am indeed glad that you enjoy this image which I took with my Nikon and still learning the way of good photography.

Nature has abundant of objects and living things for us to photograph and enjoy. What a wonderful world we live in.

Take care.

Well it was a chance encounter of both species and I managed to get it with my camera. Glad that you too enjoy this image much as I had enjoyed snapping it. Indeed the wonder of nature at our doorstep.

Is that bunga lidah kucing (Turnera Ulmifolia)? I have a few lidah kucing plants in my compound. The flowers are normally visited by small bees. You were lucky to have a royal butterfly as the visitor! Lovely shot!

Temuk, Thanks for the visit and sharing your valuable thoughts on this flower.

Yes indeed it is a Turnera Ulmifoli or as you said Lidah Kucing. Actually I did not know the name of this yellow flowers until you mentioned it. And true in the morning small bees would make a regular visit and I did photograph one such visit; read this http://idrus.blogspot.com/2009/06/that-insects.html

This image of the flower with that royal butterfly was just chance encounter during my adventure with the macro lens last year. Thanks for the good words on this shot. I does made my day.

BTW I bought a pot of this flower some years ago and it has since spread on its own to other place near my house. It look like a very hardy plant and could grow easily, even in crevice.

Have a nice day and take care.

Salam Pak Idrus,

I would never have noticed the yellow butterfly if you had not pointed it out! What a smart camouflage!

What a beautiful photo, Pak Idrus. I love yellow flowers anyway, so this is a double delight for me.

It's also very interesting to learn that it's name is lidah kucing.

Sharifah, thanks for the visit and the good words on this photography of mine. Appreciate it very much. I am still learning the way of good photography. Glad that you enjoy that flower. Flowers always bring joys to me as well.

Well, in Blogging we share information and by that we get to learn more. It is only after this posting that I came to know the name of this beautiful yellow flower.

Have a nice day and take care.
