Remember that my 2014 nature photography calendars are available for sale on my online Zazzle store.  All calendars are made to order in the USA so you support the US economy with your purchase, and a starving artist at the same time (me!). I appreciate all referrals through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and of course your blog or website.

Today I’m participating in Floral Friday Fotos. If you enjoy my images, I encourage you to subscribe and receive updates when I post new photos, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

Celosia are ornamental plants in the amaranth family, Amaranthaceae. Their name is derived from the Greek word κηλος (kelos), which means burned. Celosia comes in a variety of colors, but when you spot the red, orange and yellow Celosia flowers, you can understand why their flame-like look earned them their name. I hope these Celosia blooms bring some color to your day. Enjoy!

  4. Truly beautiful flowers – I really like the first picture with the red and yellow flower side by side, giving the impression of flames. Definitely a high energy flower!
