Pink Festival (Rhododendron sp.)

rhodendron white ringed at opening one with white pollen curl against each other

Purplish-pink anthers, one covered with pollen, almost share a kiss inside the blossom of a rhododendron.

We go softly into the dark night, as winter begins, but the festival never ends; all of the lights we carry internal and eternal at once.

(Second shot after the break, plus black and white versions.)

Three’s a crowd: Two rhodendron anthers almost touch, while a third stands out of focus in the background.
