A few weeks ago I got the opportunity to photograph the many ornamental pear blossoms in San Diego’s Balboa Park. It was one of those perfect days to take photos: beautiful blue sky with just a few clouds, warm temperatures and a slight breeze. I shared a couple of photos in previous posts, but today I’m displaying the best shots I got on that day in one single post.

Enjoy and remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

This is what the ornamental pear blossoms look like from underneath the tree.

I love how these pear trees reach high up to the sky.

I think this is my favorite photo of the whole lot.

These pear blossoms have a pretty repulsive smell but bees seem to love it and were very busy collecting nectar.
