• This gallery of flowers is gathered after a decade of visiting national parks, nature refuges and botanical gardens across the US, Mexico, Colombia, Kenya, China, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand.

Some of my favorite locations include the Texas hill country (near Austin, TX in the early Spring is stunning!), Chicago Botanic Garden, The Dallas Botanical Garden, San Antonio Botanical Garden, Phoenix Botanical Garden, and Smoky Mountain National Park.

The geometry and color of the petals is what interests me as a photographer. It’s amazing that the plant kingdom has evolved to visually appeal to animals to spread their genes!
