Here are a couple more shots from the Smith College greenhouses.  The skies were dark and I was shooting hand-held, with high ISOs and long exposures, but a couple of things did come out:

This complex blossom has some ruby bits:

Sorry, I didn’t get its name.

And this little beauty, perhaps a red agave?

I’m hoping to get back there early in the day, maybe even tomorrow, with a tripod and bag of lenses; if I do, you’ll be the first to know.

Thanks to Mary over at Work of the Poet for this Rubilicious meme!

Wonderful shots!
I’ve never seen that second plant – love the pattern and color.
The shots in your previous post are also quite beautiful.

And while I’m at it – the moon shots – love however you did the last two. 🙂

Those are such incredible creations of nature. It is a treat to be able to photograph them especially this time of year. Great shots. Can’t wait to see more.

The explosion of color is outstanding. To see the works of a flower artist must be something, they have the eye to create artistry using their imagination. Alas, we could never achieve the same results in our seasonal gardens…

These are gorgeous. I hope you do return.

You found some vibrant rubies to combat the bleakness of February!

Happy belated Ruby Tuesday

All, thank you.

I’m currently scarfing unsecured internet access at roadside, and can’t stay long, as the local police are bored and will doubtless roust me if I stay.
