Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Tillandsia, Commonly Known As, Airplant

.
Airplants are more than prolific around the East Tampa area where we spent the winter.  They were all over the ground around Tana, the home on wheels.  I could pick up thousands.  I did not, pick up thousands, but, I did pick up a few. They are such an interesting species.


And, they bloom.

Mandrill

Tampa Lowry Zoo.

Some of the creatures take a rest in a spot that makes it difficult for the human eye or the Sony Too to find.  We did the best we could.

Sony Too to the max.  The Golden Lion Tamarin is considered an endangered species (800 in the wild, living in Eastern Brazil) per the signage at the zoo.
