Bougainvillea - blue AZ sky

Was photographing skies (for future insertion into photos with gray skies) and noticed that the bougainvillea were nicely saturated and looked great against the blue sky -- so thought of you guys, and here they are!

Decided to make a flowerbed (seamless) texture out of the second one Carolyn.

Re: Bougainvillea - blue AZ sky

Why not some AC stuff as well. It's been a while. The glass cage one is seamless w/ transparent background.
