Photographer's Note

Albuquerque's Bio Park is a beautiful blend of Nature's flora & fauna with human art & fantasies. It has a zoo, aquarium and this scene is within the botanical gardens.
These chrysanthemums, commonly called "mums" because it is a difficult word to spell and annunciate, are one of my favorite flowers. Mums are very hardy, handling temperature extremes, and being perennials go to sleep in the winter and rejuvenate in the summer. They bloom in late summer and autumn, which helps to vary with spring blooming flower species. I have more mums in my garden than any other flowering plant, and am enjoying one specie's flowers here in late November.
