My photo of the day has several things that I love in it; orange and sun flare. How could it not be my photo of the day? Ironically, if I wasn't thirsty we would have never seen this flower. It was kind of hidden by the bathroom / vending machines.
They had tons of these flowers. I wanted a different picture of them, but the opportunity never presented itself.
This fence was meant to keep people out? Not really, but if they were trying to use this as an actual fence it was an epic fail.
While we were there I think there might have been five or six weddings about to start or just finishing. This was one of the places that was set up for the wedding, but the guests had not arrived yet. How pretty is this place?
For some reason they had a frontier type village set up. It was kind of neat, but I really couldn't figure out how that fit in with the whole Arboretum experience.
Inside one of the little frontier buildings. No smoking. : )
I hate aiming my camera at little kids because I always think that some one is going to think I am a perv or something, but I just couldn't resist this one. I actually did kind of hide so that no one would see me and I know that it would've been better if I wouldn't have hid to take the picture, but we're calling this baby steps. I took a picture of some one else's kid and nothing bad happened to me. (She was sitting on a rock eating a peanut butter sandwich dipping her feet in the water).
And now for a few from Mr. Man. It's always funny how we see things differently.
He has long arms and was able to snap this picture of the water lily in the middle of a small pond. His composition is just amazing when you consider the fact that he could only guesstimate what he was aiming at.
This is the same plant as my photo of the day, just from his point of view.
