At last I have captured my Brugmansia ... photo taken at @ 2:30 pm today ... new method ... and SOME of you might be interested to know that this image came directly from my camera, no manipulation, no sharpening, no contrast adjustment ... f 11, 1/25 sec, ISO 100, hand held, ... I think it's not too terribly bad ... it certainly shows sufficiently that this is a beautiful plant (from a branch I stuck in the planter box about five years ago ...)

Jubilada, I love your Sunflowers, my birds would go crazy, if I had those here.
I have 2 Brugmansias blooming, right now. My Frosty Pink, and a noid white. And 2 others making buds. They need to hurry up, because by the end of August, the frost will bite them. I will have to start covering them. The Frosty pink is about 9 feet tall, and I will have to cut that one down in fall, to bring it in.

Wonderful face-to-face flower shots, Jubilada -- so up close, personal and loaded with pretty!

Dinu, that's an incredible inside look at the Hibiscus. Fascinating!

A couple of Skippers today at the local Botanic Gardens...

Our maid-servant. My DD was trying something on the PC and I was holding the camera and she was using the keyboard to click. She could see what I was focusing. Our maid-servant was mopping the floor and she was seeing herself on the PC monitor and blushing - shy and telling 'why are you taking the picture - it wont come nice'!

HMM, great shots, love the Tranquility one, gorgeous. Also like the sharpness of your critter shot too.

WC, nice shot of lower Manhattan
.
Sorry to see the damage, the grasshopper has done, to your Brussel sprout, Wildcat, they can certainly be destructive.

Your tomato look real yummy, Jubilada. The Cardoon bloom, must attract some butterflies???

A Question Mark butterfly on the brew, I painted on dead wood.

Such a pretty butterfly, burn! Nice shot! Very few butterflies here this year ... don't know why, maybe because it's been so cool ... plenty of bees, however ...

Nice shot Burn, took a pic of one a few months ago, (not as good as yours), then someone told me it was a "question mark", I thought they were joking lol!

Very nice shot of the grasshopper Miss Mary! - Saw one outside the window of a skyscraper in Manhattan last month. Not that unusual, except it was on the 51st floor, (~510ft), still wondering how it got there...



- The change I get back feels lighter than usual lately, guess it all adds up... ☺

Nice shot Mary.

I still hate grasshoppers more than mosquitoes and I cuss them every day. I must have millions of those things. I know I have fed a vast hungry swarm.

End of rambling rant.

Beauty berry grows wild all over this part of Oklahoma and until just a few years ago I had no idea that they were highly regarded as a landscape plant.
