|Last month I had the pleasure of going on a photography expedition to Costa Rica with 10 other fellow travelers, all of whom were either photographers or professional landscape designers. We spent nine days photographing the plant life and wild life of tropical gardens, rain forests, botanical research sites, and park lands. I took over 1,000 photographs during my journey, and although only a few of them included roses, I thought I would share some of the images here with my ATP friends.
2. Eucrosia - the name comes from the Greek "eu," meaning good, and "krosos," meaning fringe, referring to the unique bloom structure.

|I don't know whether it's the plants or your photography that's so beautiful, because you somehow manage to make even fungi look enchanting, but bravo!|

| Absolutely amazing, both the plantlife & the photography
Roses are one of my passions! Just opened, my Etsy shop (to fund my rose hobby)! http://www.etsy.com/shop/TweetsnTreats

|Great photos, Mike! Thanks for posting.
I believe I see cannas, passionflower, orchids, bamboo, alstroemeria, pineapple, hibiscus, and perhaps an echeveria and a fuchsia? I wonder whether it would be possible to get IDs for these plants? Maybe a little informal contest here, or something.

|Thanks everyone, I'm glad you like the images. My trip through Costa Rica was such a wonderful experience - the colors, textures, patterns - it was like being on sensory overload. Here are some more images of plants.
