Foster Botanical Gardens.

Photo of gecko on bromiliad.

Today was President’s Day holiday. The weather was beautiful! Foster Gardens was a little crowded, I usually see fewer than 5 people on the weekend. Today there must have been at least 20 people wandering around the grounds while we were there. I am glad to see people taking an interest! :) The Bromeliad section of the garden has been greatly improved! The “butterfly garden” has filled in nicely. Not much in the way of butterfly action though. There were about 4 or 5 that hung around but seldom landed. The one I was able to photograph looked like it was attacked by an Anole or Gecko — bite taken out of it’s wing. I searched the milk weeds (Crown Flower) for Monarch caterpillars but did not find any. The new green house conservatory is really cool! Lots of orchids, strange air plants, and pitcher plants. It was a good day to photograph! :mrgreen:

Mahalo for the personal comments on my Foster Gardens QTVR guys! For those interested, I went through and grabbed a few more images out of the shoot folder and put together a SimpleViewer gallery. Please click on the thumbnail (at left) to view it.

We have a bunch of weddings this week so I will not be posting for a while. I am sure I will have lots to write about once we are done though. Reminder: Olympic opening ceremonies begin on 08-08-08 (Friday). Keep your eyes peeled –the athletes are cool but prototype cameras and lenses are way more fun for those of us not competing! ;)
