National Botanical Garden

A few shots from the National Botanical Garden near the Capitol in DC:

Bee on echinachae flower:



Not sure, maybe it's one of the carnivorous plants they had on display (it looks scary enough):



Orchid?



Banana flower:



The whole set is here:

1. Oh, wow. These are so clear, the color is great. Love the bee!

And the banana flower. Haven't seen one of those in years.

3. Spectacular. Especially the Banana flower

the second IS carnivorous my memory says from seeing them with even larger pockets in the Sarasota Botanical Gardens. Some have pockets large enough for a MOUSE.
But then, I did not really believe that then, and I'm not sure I do now, either. Beautiful work!
