Enhance Your Natural Essence
These are simply gorgeous!have a fab weekend, Joanne!
I never saw it before. I checked the dictionary. Speciosa is a Latin word for beautiful, impressive... It describes this flower so perfectly.
It's beautiful. I've never seen anything like it. I couldn't stop looking at it. The shots just kept drawing me back to look again :)
That is a beautiful banksia, i've seen it in Australia a long time ago, but somehow only the red remained in my head. BTW, i wonder what happened to your new Olympus as i can't open yet the full story. I am using also an Oly, but E620. I hope this is more durable.
Oh wow..what a unique flower, and I haven't seen this before! So exquisite looking!
Fascinating flower! And the leaves remind me of the border on my patchwork quilt. Nice macros. :)
Duni, thank you and to you as well.Josep, they are pretty unusual and the gardens have many species. I just found a new one that I'll be posting later on. Ann, thanks, they are fascinating to see. I've see some more different ones out there as well.Andrea, I just came across the red species the other day and took some shots. It's gorgeous so I'll be posting those at a later date. I think my Oly was defective. It began getting very hot to the touch and after about four months just stopped working. I loved it and it took great pics but I don't know what happened. My new GE so far is working fine. It took these pics.Icy, thanks, there are some very unusual ones at the gardens.Diane, :D thank you very much. Have a great weekend

Gorgeous, not just the flowers but the leaves too, have an interesting geometry.You always have so special flower to share, nice work!
