We have reached the 4500 image mark!

This week's collection is still more of me playing 'catch-up' and adding images that I've had waiting in the wings. It's an eclectic bunch spanning a couple of years of travel, and the plants represent temperate and tropical climates, spring through fall.

I would like to know if you think the images are getting too small to view. Once upon a time they seemed huge, and while screen sizes are increasing, resolutions are too. That means that the photos take up a smaller portion of the screen space than they used to.

When you compare this


vs. this


do you feel the same looking at both images? Do they convey the same thing? Or is bigger better (or worse) in this case?

Let me know!

Thanks, and keep warm... Spring is coming!
