    Lovely Hoyas and beautiful photography, I love the one with the water droplet gleaming down. I don't get the Batman joke though hehe.

    Amey, the Batman joke is a spin-off from a silly comic/superhero. Batman has a sidekick who always had a "Holy ____, Batman" comment. The blank was filled in, usually with a pun that related to the situation they found themselves in at the time.

    Great pictures, Pavel!

    I love hoyas! beautiful pics by the way. I can't wait for mine to bloom! Although I think it may take some time--mine are my grandmother's rescue plants.
