Those are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

It's awesome to think how TINY they are, and still have such colors and intricate shapes.

Embrace the impossible.

I've seen enough pollen lately. The average pollen count around here is 200 and this year it has been as high as 8,000. I'm going nuts on medication. :wacko:

The cars in our parking lot are blanketed with a thick, yellow tinge. We're in FL. and ever since the 4 consecutive hurricanes we had in a hurricane season a few years ago, nature has been working overtime to grow itself back. This is the worst it's been in 30+ years. I get allergy shots which helps tremendously, 4 shots per week. lol
