I’m a self taught photographer who enjoys macro photography, especially wildflowers and other flora and fauna seen in nature. I also enjoy photographing refractions and reflections from rain and water.
Thank you so much!

because that flower will never bloom without those ants. they need to remove the skin and than it can bloom. the flower won’t open by itself. beautiful ;)
I didn’t know that, Manon…so cool! Thanks so much!
Fantastic image Lynn
Thanks so much for your lovely comment, John!
apparently I am really wrong about the ants. I made a little search and read here. at least I learned something about this. people tell me things and I think it’s true. next time I will check it on the net to be sure it’s real ;)
I just saw your post Manon and read your link…it’s so nice to read that they have a harmonious relationship!
Don’t like ants, I had a fight with a bull ant nest once, thought I would go crazy…They know there is something they can eat..Good shot Lynn….Shirley
Thank you so much, Shirley!
