Taken in the tropical house at Edinburghs Royal Botanic Garden to which i return soon to carry on tripod wrangling in the pursuit of oh so elusive macros..

I find this somehow very calming tho had never spotted those wicked hooks the lily pad must use to repel intruders…

A calming screensaver I find and am happy to supply..LOL

Cheers and thanks so much for looking

    So there went the resolve, eh? But the resolution is superb! At least you remembered the tripod; I perched it as monopod yesterday at one point. This is beautiful and clear. I’ve not seen the hooks, either, but doesn’t lessen the beauty of your shot, Maggie.

  • teehee yes i cracked…LOL.. and thanks jan .. have got quite fond of this as a screensaver .. so undemanding and calm somehow
