Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    I agree with Vee – I’ve always thought they look like matches! Sure is a beautiful image – I love magnolias, probably because we don’t have many of the big white ones around here.

  • Thank you, Monnie. My sister in New York used to have a gorgeous magnolia tree…prettier than these in Florida. I don’t have one, so I was not familiar with these seeds. They are interesting!
