Center of the flower

This photo is an even closer view of the center of the same type of flower that I showed yesterday.

Here is a little news update from Costa Rica. The country's President, Laura Chinchilla returned last weekend from a trip to the USA. Her primary purpose of the trip was to give the commencement address and receive an honorary degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where she earned a master's degree in public policy in 1989 (and I earned one of my three degrees).

Tomorrow I will tell you what else she did on her trip to the USA.

If this week you have not yet checked out our photos of the Villa Balbianello in Lake Como, Italy, please check out our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Dave, this one is special. The red and green jump off the page. Julie must have changed a setting on her blog. I was able to post a comment today for the first time in months.

Very nice macro shot! Can't wait to hear the story. I didn't hear anything on the news.

Flowers look so different and interesting when you come in close!

I am interested to find out what else she did while here.

Dave, I read Julie's quote in the Journal today. Pretty cool.

That's spectacular. The red petals look like propeller blades all crowded together.
