This whole post is excellent but I agree with Matt on Angela's shot! That is called Queen's Wrath vine. I admired it in person too. Love love love it!

The photos are stunning. You captured the details nicely even in the low light. Everyone who attended must have had professional cameras as all the photos are awesome. What kind of camera do you have (same question for Angela)?

Thanks for posting. Wish I could have gone.

I have a cheapo Pentax istD. Having a nice camera helps... I felt I was at a big disadvantage compared to most people at the biennial... lots of folks had very nice equipment with nice lenses... first thing I'm gonna get when I have some extra cash is a nice lens!!!! :yay:

At the restaurant where we stopped for lunch on the way to WBG,

our guide Daniel showed us what would happen to a Brunfelsia flower

when touched by a lighted cigarette.
