After catching a Wolverine, I headed over to Matthei Botanical Gardens to catch some flowers. Non-moving things are a little easier to catch. Except when you are talking about the kind of depth of field associated with close-up photography. As I have said in the past, I'm not a botanist, so I'm not about to identify these.
I think this first one is an orchid.
These flowers are called purple heart flowers.
I have no idea what this plant is called but I do like its looks.
I really like this one.
Of all the times I've gone there, I did not realize they had a banana tree.
I really like this flower.
This is called a mosaic plant. It kind of reminds me of a mosaic.
I decided to get a little closer because I think these are pretty cool looking plants.
So then I got even closer. I kind of wish I had a better macro lens so that I can get closer yet but oh well.
This picture was shot through a kalaidescope.
So now we are back to flowers I don't know.
I liked the looks of this one but I had to lay down in order to get the right angle.
A bonsai tree. I think this one was started in the 80's.
I kind of like the Koi pond they have but the low shutter speeds make it difficult.
A closeup of a cactus.
I really liked this flower.
A closeup of another type of cactus. There were some other shots I liked but I didn't want to get sued by Disney.
I believe this is a type of plant called a Hiawortha but that's all I know about it.
This is a type of palm tree.
Looking through part of their desert plants. It was really nice to spend some time in a warm place yesterday.
Picture number three is some form of Bromeliad. Notable bormeliads include pineapple and Spanish moss.
