These were taken at the San Diego Zoo.

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

    It's so hard to capture the flitting of a Hummingbird, but you did it perfectly.

    I'm traveling and I can not put a post but I can get online from the hotel.

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

  26. 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.
