Day 21 of my Capture Beauty Challenge...

And today’s captured beauty is my beautiful wife (I’m in the picture just for decoration 😅) - my “partner in crime” for 28 years now...



Can’t wait to see what beauty YOU captured today.

I photographed a tiny guppy today! With my phone and through two not so clean glass walls... so it's not the best photography, but I still like it. This small aquarium now has a thick underwater "forest" of plants and I love watching how the tiny guppies navigate through it. They are now one week old and they're so transparent that it's visible how their organs develop!

beautiful couple!
here are a couple limes
i found one had dropped yesterday and i knocked the other off by accident today
it is exciting though because i have never tried that variety
the one on the left is a key lime and the one on the right is a persian lime
the key lime produced about 30 limes for me recently but this is the first persian lime i will get to try


the pineapples continue to be beautiful!
i believe the one on the right is sugarloaf and the one on the left is white jade

Looks like wet tree bark.  I would guess some type of conifer. Nice.

Looks like bougainvillea to me. A variegated one. They like warm winters. Where's it located?

Cistus ladanifer, a rockrose, without the usual spots!

I love the crumpled petals on this plant.

Taken this afternoon.

I believe this is Lathyrus cicera.



The local wildlife seem to enjoy the leaves of this plant!




This was very close by but I'm not sure if it's the same species or not.
