  2. I don't remember Queen Anne's lace. Is it a vine?
    Here we have White Lace, which is an autumnal vine.
    It looks attractive and is well captured!

  10. Not sure if I have ever seen this plant before. It looks more like some creature or plant in the ocean. Very nice and sharp. Thanks for the kind comment on the bee. It's just I like to do something different all the time and felt I wimped out this week with a bee.

  11. Karen, What a great macro shot--that is really unusual and beautiful. The hibiscus is not in my garden (darn it). Both varieties were at the San Diego Zoo--I think they are the prettiest ones I have ever seen. Have a great week. Mickie :)

  33. This view is amazing and beautiful. The massive look is akin to a starburst, with the lacy flowers to be racing away from the center. A unique and lovely view!
