      Thanks Edith that the state bird of Alabama pictured. I don’t want to say that they are large but moments after the picture was taken the flower broke away from the tree. LOL

    What a colorful series of Spring beauty. Very nicely captured, Phillip.

    No idea what the last one is, other than beautiful. 🙂

      Thanks Jimi. It is a pretty tree. I’ve seen them around and I know that I’ll be surprised when I find out its name.

    Beautiful images Phillip. That first one really rocks.

    • Phillip April 2, 2012 at 5:52 am #

      Thanks Len. Unfortunately, the first one is an image of only one of too many of these creatures! They have a way of spoiling a good evening.
