When we vacation we often stop along the way and buy some flowers. This hummingbird was appreciative of our efforts...

Longwood Gardens by day and by Night

Longwood Gardens by day and by Night

We photographed the water lilies (and dragonflies on the water lilies) all morning and then the grounds during the afternoon and then the light installation until they closed. LOVED it all!

The dragonfly has obviously been creatively edited but the water bottles by night was a zoom blur done while taking the photograph, so it is straight out of the camera (SOOC)
