Picture of the Moment—Itsy bitsy, teeny tiny, little, & beautiful

Picture of the Moment

It’s amazing how having a great macro lens for one’s camera causes one to see things that one has never seen before, like these itsy bitsy teeny tiny little beautiful flowers.

Picture of the Moment—The very rare Agave utiliensii

Picture of the Moment

The city of San Diego, as well as its suburbs, love to paint their streetside utility boxes.

I’m not complaining.

I love ’em, and I’m always on the lookout for the coolest of the cool ones.

Utility boxes are usually at street corners or in heavily trafficked areas where there is no parking so they often are difficult to get a picture of.

I have been known, however, to go around the block several times looking for parking so I can get out and take a picture.

Here’s one of my favorites from this past weekend:

Agave utiliensii

I believe it’s the very rare Agave utiliensii, not normally seen in cultivation.

Picture of the Moment—Meet Coco

I’m the incoming newsletter editor for the San Diego Cactus & Succulent Society (SDCSS) .

With over 700 members, it’s the largest chapter of the Cactus & Succulent Society of America.

So I was obligated (not that anyone had to twist my arm) to attend the SDCSS Winter Show & Sale.

I heard that it’s the second largest cactus & succulent show & sale in the United States, right behind the SDCSS Summer Show & Sale.

It looks like I’m going to have a great time meeting lots of people, seeing lots of cool plants, taking lots of pictures, and, of course, compiling the newsletter each month.

Here’s my favorite picture from this past weekend:

That’s Coco. She’s just a year old and belongs to one of our SDCSS members. One of her parents was a floppy-eared dog and the other parent was a perky-eared dog. Hence, the floppy ear and the perky ear on little Coco, which I thought was sooooooooooooooo cute.

Fortunately, my assistant, a cutie herself, is not jealous so she did approve this post.

Picture of the Moment—Public art

Picture of the Moment

When the tides are extraordinarily low, as they were today, it’s fun to go look at what I call “low tide art,” carvings in the sand banks that’s only visible during these very low tides.

Here’s one of the best I found today in Ocean Beach:

Covfefe

Would that qualify as public art?

Picture of the Moment—Super blue blood moon

Picture of the Moment

 I think I might have gotten a one-of-a-kind picture of the Super Blue Blood Moon just minutes for the eclipse, and minutes before sunrise here in San Diego started interfering too severely with the moon.

You be the judge.
