Throughout my stay in Australia, the most amazing foliage would catch my eye, both its intrinsic beauty and its exotic uniqueness from anything I'd seen before.
This particularly lovely flower caught my attention even before breakfast and had me out the door to take a snap.
High up the tree it was clinging to was this web glinting in the sunlight.
These lovely palm trees can be seen outside the entrance to the Perth Zoo. (If you look carefully you can see the animal flags.) :)
I call this one "Reflections".
It was just an "oops" shot, but I thought it turned out nicely!
Several times the close-up view was dramatic and demanded a pic. This grass was outside the giant tortoise display at the Perth Zoo.
As was this brutal looking thorny plant.
I'll bet with PhotoShop this sillhouette of a blossom would really snap.
I was fascinated by the smooth trunk on this palm tree.
Dramatic "sun through the branches". lol
The funkiest blossoms I noticed in Australia had to have been the banksia blossoms. They look like bottle brushes to me. :)
The next two are closeups of wild flowers that they sow along the roadsides north of Perth to beautify the area.
Pretty huh? lol
