From the plane
I just got back from spending some time with my sister Kiki in Madrid. We are very, very close but we hadn't seen each other in fifteen years! It was an incredible and emotional reunion. We visited the Real Jardín Botánico one day and these are some of the wonders I spied with my little eye. The last photo is the view from the plane before landing in Madrid.

All I have to say is wow...All of your post are truly amazing but this one really caught my attention! I absolutely loved all the textures you captured as well as all the different angles you used. It really inspired me to try to take pictures of something out of the ordinary, I mean who would have thought taking close of plants could look so cool! Here is another blog I found interesting if you are curious in checking it out reminded me much of your stuff.
