Very interesting shots! I can't figure out what that first thing is. brocco-mushro-flower? lol The close-up of the cactus in B&W is also very interesting!

Have a great day!

I especially like the moon photo! And that top one looks like a HUGE pine cone.

LOVE the new header! What a talented mother you had.

The picture of the moon is lovely. I can’t believe how black and white can enhance a subject so well at time. This is one of those special photos I think.

Wonderful shots - love the pinecone. It took me a moment to realize what it is, but very cool and nice perspective. Love the changing header photo, too.
