    Default Out Playing With the Camera (No Orchids)

    Yesterday I went to the local orchid judging and got there early. The location has lots of plants and gardens around so I killed some time with my camera. The lighting conditions were not the best due to bright sunlight out, but I had fun anyway.



    Ornamental grass seed head-looks like a fuzzy caterpiller.


    Fuschia




    This little flower had the most gorgeous iridescent petals that reminded me of butterfly wings.

    The picture with no label...looks like grass or a cool tree...very nice! I'd blow that shot up for a big poster...it catches your eye and holds it. You have a great eye for pictures...

    Normally I'm drawn to vibrant colors, but my favorite of your shots is the 4th one -- whether it is some type of grass or willow/shrub.
