Playing around with the somewhat contrasting combination of desaturation and sunlight. Aren't tulips pretty? I'd love to be able to stand in a sea of them in Holland. Maybe I'd find something like that at Butchart or VanDusen Gardens? Can't wait for Spring!
I met prehistoric-looking Iguana on a recent trip. Look at those lips! They look pretty moist compared to the rest of him. My skin gets dry and scaly this time of year too... from the cold though, not the heat as he faces everyday.

Here's a close look at some bees busy on some pink flowers. Or perhaps it's the same bee who's extra busy on a number of flowers. Assuming the flower is as tasty to the bee as the sumptuous pink colour looks, it's no wonder the bees were crawling all over with delight.
