    Those extraordinary vertical rainbow effects are lovely.

    Those are lovely, North Star. I think I can see where the pot of gold should be in the second picture. I checked out some of your photos on Flickr and even started an account of my own.

    That picture with the squirrel approaching the hawk and the expression on the hawk's face is amazing, Snowqueen.

    I remember when cigarettes where 25 cents a pack, Calidore. I also remember some of those quarters still had real silver in them which makes me wonder why I put them into those machines in the first place.

    Two pics of my long departed mother's Amaryllis. She doesn't bloom every year, in fact it seems that it has been maybe four years or so since the last blooming.
    I like to think of it as her way of paying us a visit. The plant is at least 30 years old and still going strong.

    These are amazing closeups of flowers in bloom. What kind of camera do you use?

    Thanks for taking a look, the camera is a Pentax K-7 digital, purchased roughly 6 years ago. However, the lens I used is approximately 35 years old; Albinar 28 mm macro. The Amaryllis has five new blooms with a couple more on the way.

    Photography is one skill I never learned, which is a pity. I've only got a several years old camera that I use, digital, but I am now sorry I didn't get a digital camera with a decent lens.

    I have an Amaryllis plant that blooms off and on. I suppose there is a way to get it to bloom yearly with the right light or fertilizer, but I don't know what that is. Nice photos, Gilliatt Gurgle.

    All I have for a camera is what is on my phone.

    I don't have a mobile phone but you encourage me to try with my CASIO EX-Z80.

    I like this one, in particular. Almost appears to be taken in black and white, non-colour.

    The colors do seem unreal in their contrast. I also liked the one with the chair on the beach.

    Yeah, that's a pretty spooky picture of the chair--like a ghost's throne, something that ought to have permanence but doesn't.
