I'm so glad my favorite Los Angeles botanical garden (there are a few in LA) happens to be less than 3 miles away from where I live. I'm not big on shooting flowers (and sunsets) ever since my first photography teacher banned us from taking those kinds of shots, but I go because of the stream and the TURTLES that inhabit it (along with the koi fish). However, I never can get a decent shot of the them. Oh well. There's always a next time.
