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.

    gorgeous capture

  • Thank you very much, Kathy. Sometimes flowers are just as pretty on the back side, aren’t they! I kind of like the one little area where the sun is shining on it — makes it look silky there.

    The flower looks so beautiful against the blue sky!

  • Thanks mauli. If you look at the larger view you can see the screen between the plant and the sky. This was in a pot inside my lanai.
