    Everybody loves flowers!!!

    I have been trying for the past month to get some shots of my pygmy that are flowering....it's hard believe me! It's like playing hide and seek to catch the flowers open!...or it's hard just because i have a job that's eating my time...don't know. Anyway...

    helodes


    leioblastus


    x lake badgerup


    occidentalis (this one was very hard to catch!!!)


    x carbarup


    oreopodion


    paleacea


    nitidula x pulchella



    ...and this very rare form of binata


    sargentii


    omissa x pulchella




    See you around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ***dart, the flowers on my pygmies open around 10:00 or so in the morning and then close around 2:00 in the afternoon.---so around 4 hours for mine.
    but some only last around 2 hours

    mark---the Occidentalis and Helodes are my faves! nice work putting that photo set together.

    Wow, that's really short.
    Now for a harder question... Why do they stay open for such a short period of time?

    Hats off, dude! That took a whole lot of patience to get those shots.

    Awesome!
