PS: great shot.



Well at least zig is actually seeing a hibiscus bloom. I lost all 6 of my Hibiscus bushes to the cold. All are dead, with no signs of any rejuvenation. It's enjoyable to actually see a current photo of one. Normally this time of year I would be having fun photographing my flowers.

Maybe I should forget the flowers and go take some gator picture for Ted!:lachen001:

A gator ate your hibiscus? I always thought they are carnivores...

Hi Ted,

This may have been the culprit as he has a very guilty looking smile:D

Yeah - he looks like he has Steven's address written all over him.

Hey Steven, I want to be sure that you know that Zig and I are teasing you but that doesn't mean we're making light of you losing your Hibiscus bushes. I'm really sorry you lost them - I hate to see any beautiful plant die. We're just trying to get you to smile.

I'm glad that zig actually saw a gator. After this winter, all the gators have left from my lake. They have been replaced with a new, strange looking flock of birds!!! :lachen001:

Here is the new state bird of Florida:

Really nice shots Ted.
Now you and the rest of the tribe have inspired me. Have to go out and show what the rainy cloudy Northwest has to offer....:)

I don't see Hibiscus until late July around here..

Thanks. Do it while you can - a heavy thunderstorm yesterday knocked most of the daffodils down to the ground. Jeeez theres a small window for outdoor shooting around here in the Spring...
