Beautiful....do they let you use a tripod in DC? I remember another one that kind of looked like this! :)

Marvelous, Gail!
Rich colors in an eye-pleasing composition, wonderful shapes and details, and perfect outdoor weather --- "They" must've known you were coming that day!

Thank you all...Linda, there are some places they don't allow tripods, mostly inside the monuments. I had the monopod because I was inside the atrium shooting the flowers. You all should come up this way for photos!
