    My wife found this lovely little flower. It is so small, yet up close it looks to be a giant boquet.

    Friends! If it wasnt for my wife I might have missed this one. I was off playing with the monkeys...

    What a big softy! I got to pet this big guy right on the head as he moved towards us in curiosity. This was the best shot I could get with everything in the way! :p

    2 and 4 are pretty awesome! The first needs to be a little sharper, but it is a very interesting flower.

    core: Thanks very much! I agree with the flower needing to be a little sharper. I was shooting with an Argus P&S and the macro on that thing just sint that great. Tomorrow I get my new Fuji and then I will be getting some better details.

    So good that your wife pointed you to the scene that now makes your Photo 2 of the series! It is the best of the lot!

    LaFoto: LMAO! Well, actually...I dont have them in any order. Out of all I would have to say the flamingo is my favorite shot of the lot.

    Thanks everyone!
