As befits an arboretum, Boyce-Thompson has more than birds.
Very nice Isabel. You did well not to blow out the reds, they often are. The detail is still there in them. Nice depth of field.
Jim – High praise indeed. It was over my head, or almost, with only the sky behind. Maybe that helped.
Makes me feel warm just to look at your photo! I think I’d like it hanging on my wall of my sewing room these cold January days.
Alison – Holler if you want a full-res (I might still have it!).
Cactus flowers are so lush, in great contrast to their dry environment – a celebration of life! Beautiful photo.
Judith – Thanks! We see very few of the flowers in our winter sojourn. Most arrive after we leave. But I’m pretty sure I don’t want to brave their spring temps just to see more cactuses in bloom!

I invite you to help me make a difference by buying my latest book. All my royalties are going to Food Banks Canada to help with the problem of food insecurity, made even worse by this pandemic.
@janicedickson His Urdu is impressive
"The political damage to the gov't will likely be minimal, simply due to the chronic civic illiteracy of Canadians, many of whom no doubt responded to the news of Payette’s resignation as GG by asking who Payette is and what’s a governor general." https://nationalpost.com/opinion/matt-gurney-julie-payette-had-no-business-being-governor-general-in-the-first-place
Unfortunately nobody really expects what politicians say at any given moment to bear any relationship to what they say at some other moment. Or to what they do then or later. https://twitter.com/sunlorrie/status/1352371228888227849
