April 2020 - something bicolour

Post by MikeT » Fri Apr 03, 2020 7:51 pm

I don't think I'm much good at coming up with original ideas. However, how about photos of something in 2 different colours. It could be foliage, maybe variegated, it could be flowers - as long as there are two different colours to see. I'll hunt around for an example to add.

2 colour flower is fine, Russell. I tried to find a Thelocactus bicolor flower photo but discovered the only ones I have are spoiled by too much light reflection off the petals, giving the appearance of a white ring as well as the purple and red.

No limit. But less than 500 would make judging easier :wink:

Foliage is fine

or flowers

Or bicoloured spines. Bicoloured anything cactus or succulent. Thelocactus bicolor ssp tricolor wouldn't work though.

Good choice! Some of my favourites are strongly bicoloured.

Fricii about a year old, it got to the stage where they usually die, went blind, then made it through the other side.

See the green yellow and albino :mex:
