These were taken at the San Diego Zoo.
If you want more detail you can enlarge them.




The flower below attracted a hummingbird. You can see him better if you enlarge the photo.

Isn't it wonderful that you can visit animals at a zoo and see beautiful flowers too? You photographed each flower very well. They are all lovely. Great picture of the hummer.

That first powder puff bush has gone crazy at my house and given all the other plants a bad time haha Sandy

Denise they are just gorgeous !
It's so hard to capture the flitting of a Hummingbird, but you did it perfectly.
What a stunning place to visit.

These are beautiful Denise! I think the first one is my favorite and your hummingbird was a happy added attraction.
It looks like you had a wonderful trip to the zoo as evidenced by your previous posts.

Flower Town said...

A beautiful set of photos here Denise. I wonder what that first flower is called.

Xavi said...

What a great source of inspiration in the Botanical Gardens to make great pictures.
What a wonderful series!
I'm traveling and I can not put a post but I can get online from the hotel.
Have a nice Sunday, Denise!

Kay said...

Wow! I thought this was Hawaii for a minute because the flowers look so similar from the Hibiscus to the African Tulips.

LC said...

All the photos are very nice, but the first one is spectacular in my opinion! L

eden said...

These are gorgeous blooms. Great shots.

Have a great week ahead.

Pat said...

The ruffly hot pink hibiscus is stunning! It looks like a Spanish dancer's skirt. Your capture of the hummingbird is FAN-tastic!

Denise said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone. I have enjoyed visiting your blogs.

Arija said...

Hmm, that's a new take on me Denise, going to the zoo to photograph flowers. The Botanical gardens, that I understand but the Zoo?

You seem to have found some real beauties there between the lions and tigers. Pity you did not throw some of them in as well for ood measure.

Love the hummingbird though!

Hope you are well and happy, that you are enjoying livfe is self evident from your photos.

It is good to be back blogging once again. Moving is very time consuming.

lisaschaos said...

Hummingbird!!! Is that a multi colored hibiscus? Very cool! And the first flower reminds me of a mimosa?

Laura said...
