      Yes! Just as beautiful as when they were in their prime, I think! Lovely images, Sadhya!

      I entirely agree with you. In fact, I have a deal with a florist to photograph flowers she can no longer sell. She thinks I'm crazy, but I know when I'm onto a good thing. I think the first in the set is the most effective. I'm not so sure the bokeh works in 3 and 4.

      You are indeed correct ... we all look beautiful in our coffins ... the wrinkles disappear and peace and tranquility surpass the troubles of life.
      It's the death throes which give me the odd twitch !! :-)

      Yes! They are beautiful, even as they die. Thank you for sharing. I am going to a greenhouse today with an abundance of exotic plants and am hoping that it is not as hot and steamy as the last time I visited. Camera fogged up right away and I had to get out of there. Peace!
