Shots from the Garden

I decided to take some photos of some of my achievements, although there's not that many. I'm still working on my gallery, which I hope to have up before christmas, but until then here's some of my best shots of the last few days. They're taken with my Fuji point and shoot so they're not spectacular, but quite good.

none of your pictures are coming through. If you hit preview before you hit submit, you will see what it is going to look like.

I can't tell what you are doing wrong, but here are the instructions about how to post pictures here:

Looks great, a0c8c! :D
I especially like what you did with the sunflower in the black background.

The pink flower reminds me of a Plumeria/Frangipani flower bud.
I'm drawn to the Mexican Flame Flower, but that might be my tendency to focus whenever I see any flower likely to attract hummingbirds. :wink:

That's a huge snail! :shock: The snails in my garden, while numerous, are usually about 1/4" at most. At least you have that little lizard on the job -- they do eat bugs, don't they? Don't get those in my garden.

Thanks for the comments, I'm trying to get better and better at my shots. The Sunflower is my proudest, but I'm gonna try and get it better, just need a different flashlight. The pink flower I think is Plumeria, it's just nto opened fully.

I'd be weary about getting mexican flame vines though, it makes some people break out.

Oh, and that snail is about half the size of the normal snails I find. There usually as big around as a quarter.
