  1. Bro Geoff
    Outstanding photo, what camera did you use to take this photo?
    How are you & Kate doing. Is this flower actually growing in your own backyard?
    Take care Geoff & keep taking special photos like this one. Is the flower true name Columbine?
    Do they come in different colors?

    1. I used my Lumix FZ200 on thise pics. Yes, we have a little flower garden in our back yard. And according to Kate (and others) it actually is a Columbine. I think they are just blue or purple. I noticed the actual flower looks more purple instead of the blue that came out in the photo. I think it has to do with white balance, but I like the blue anyway.
