Reversible Leaf

No clue as to what type of leaf /plant this is. On one side it's green and yellow, and on the other pink and brown. It is a beautiful plant.

Fiber Optic Flower

I have no clue as to what type of flower this is. I photographed this at the Houston Zoo. It has those tips that remind me of the fiber optic Christmas trees that light up on the ends.

Going Private

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my picture blog. I have decided to make this blog private - or as blogger calls it - by invite only. I am needing to find a way to watermark/copyright my pictures and would like to "privatize" it until I am done with the editing/adding the watermarks. If you'd like to continue viewing my pictures, just leave me a comment with your email and I will send you an invite.
Thanks so much for your understanding!

UPDATE: 5/5 I am going to leave this blog open for now. I am finding out that it is going to be a long process to watermark over 400 pictures. Do I really want to do that? Not really. I am happy to share my pictures with permission. So, I'll just leave it at that. I am so humbled by your kind words. Wow! I had no idea I had that many people enjoying my picture a day. Thank you!!
