Tiny Pink Rose by AuntDot

This is one very small rose from a rosebush at Rainbow Springs State Park in Marion County, Florida near Dunnellon. I dedicate this picture to the dedicated volunteers who keep the park looking beautiful.

Cropped in Picasa

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.

    What a sweet little rose, such a lovely shade of pink – beautiful bokeh too !

  • Thank you, Morag, and for the fav, too! I wasn’t able to find out what kind of rose this is, but I’ll keep trying. It is really tiny.

  • Oh,Sherri! I just saw your wonderful comment 5 months late! Forgive me for not replying. Yes, this is pretty much right from the camera, just cropped and I might have given it a little boost in saturation – I don’t remember! A very belated thank you!!!!!
