tropical flowers

I snapped a few pictures of tropical flowers while in Antigua. I was out on a walk with my husband when I suddenly began to pay attention to the nature around me and realized how different it was from home. It would be more like me to look up and identify these flowers in a field guide, but instead I'm going to hold onto the names I gave them in my head on my walk (i.e. spider flower and star flower).

Not all of these are great photographs, as I was being pulled along by my husband who is not as patient as I am when it comes to slowing down and noticing life in detail. But, I really do enjoy taking macro shots of nature. Things are so beautiful and interesting close up.
