Bottle-brush plant

The bottlebrush plant is one of those hot-climate beauties that offers up great color all the time.  I think this is most interesting when you look close-up.  The bright-colored bristles as so fine, it’s kind of like a flower with nothing but stamen.  Be careful if you go to inspect them closely because bees also love these flowers.  If you go sticking your nose in too close, you might get stung.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
