what a lovely macro and bokeh.

Beautiful bokeh and color. By the way - it is snowing like the dickens here, horrible weather throughout the midwest and east coast!

No winter weather worries there! Beautiful flower, beautiful view.

There is something about that flower in the first image which makes it seem very small, not sure what it is.

I like the landscape, too. I really need to visit Hawai'i one of these days.

So lush and invigorating. The colors are exquisite.

Interesting use of depth of field in the first shot. Lovely to look at all that green this morning -- my world is white.

makes me sigh -- sure want to have another opportunity to visit Hawaii

the previous orchid photos make me think of Alice in Wonderland. I can just see these opening their mouths and singing.

I can see why other people are using your photos - they are outstanding. I work as a gardener for the Smith College Botanic Garden in Northampton, Mass. Please come visit us this spring! www.smith.edu/garden
I'll give you a tour.

Oops.

I wanted to say hi to Tracey. I am glad to see another professional gardener here. That tour sounds good as we are up in that area a lot.
