    LaRee, thanks for your comments. I was very impressed with your hummingbird. It takes a lot of skill to capture such a moving target and you were definitely in the right place at the right time. My foliage just sat there and posed for me.

    Sure is a beautiful image. What a tight race we had here. You beat me out in number of votes. I would have been pleased to see this one as #1. I may have to visit the nursery and try my hand at growing one of these plants. It is so pretty!

    Thanks, everyone for your wonderful comments. A comment was made on dpreview panasonic forum that the color was manipulated on this foliage. It was not. Here is a link that has many pic of this plant, if anyone is interested.

    Wonderful detail, and so alive it seems to jump off the screen.

    Yep, this one does it for me. I love images of foliage and this one is excellent. Perfect for the theme too.

    Nice capture of an interesting plant. Maybe a touch oversharpened but still very good. In my TT.

    Great shot. The subtle shades of colour, and contrasting curves of the leaf edges and veins, are very appealing.
