My camera is a Panasonic LUMIX FH27 digital

We had thunderstorms this week end here in the rain forest on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington, USA. I captured the first bloom on a honeysuckle vine growing determined and wild in spite of the downpour. Bees and Hummingbirds will have a feast soon as there are numerous blooms forming on the fragrant vine

I enthusiastically love playing with art, exploring new mediums and new things with old mediums! Started when I could hold a pencil and am still going.

    Great capture Elaine, love the vibrant colors and clarity! The wild ones near my home have finish blooming and they must be a different variety, but ever so fragrant

  • We have such cool temperatures here this year, that all the blooms have been delayed! Thank you very, very much for your awesome compliment :)))
