macro_monday

February 18, 2013: I discovered the flowers below don’t belong to the New Zealand Christmas tree but instead to the Powder Puff Tree. View more photos of powder puff trees, including white and pink flowers.

Today I’m taking part in Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos. This is my first time and I hope to participate every week if I have the photos to contribute.

For this macro theme, I’m featuring a couple of photos I took this weekend at the San Diego Zoo. The weather was mostly cloudy but it still made for some decent lighting to capture these close-up shots.

As always, you can click on each image to view it in a larger format. Enjoy!
