Everyone has posted excellent pictures. My personal favorite is Mark Halls E. Glaucum flower, but I am partial to flower pics. =P

Some really awesome plants everyone! Wow, am I glad that I am not a judge! Too many great photos, each in their own right.

If I had any flowers, I would send a pic, alas!

After years of taking pix, this is still my favorite:

I started taking pix to document the flowers as a probable way to ID varieties, but was struck by the intricacy of the details and color when I uploaded the first images to my computer.

Party Re: Photo Contest - January '09

Ahhh, Mskitty...your shot of nanners,..comes close to my level of banana pics. "The best photo that I have ever taken"...looks like it could also be from any ol' WallyWorld in lower NM? Closest to purty nanners that many of us in Challenged Zones, will ever see? But. ..Mskitty......these ain't gonna grow, unless you plant them the right-side up?

Pitangadiego... that is one fantastic macro shot..! Almost Sci-fi. Looks like someone/something, who/dat 'contacted' the VLA (Very Large Array in NM).

Good pics.

Hey Chris. Great photos! To this day I have never seen any bananas as large as the Sabas in your yard! They always amazed me everytime I saw them. You gave me a lot of pups over the years when I lived in Tampa and mine never reached the size or girth of yours.

Here's my fav....Musa Mannii at Leu Gardens.
I was just there exploring around after attending a class in Orlando and happened on this plant. The lighting was perfect and I got many great shots of plants that day!

Of all of the photographs I've seen on this website, I have to say that the one most memorable to me is definitely of Chris leaning smugly against his amazing Sabas. One of my favorites for sure.
