Wonderful shots Ray! Both the flora and fauna are caught beautifully!
Ray: Zinnias are popular, Elizabeth.
No problem with pollination in your neck of the woods, Ray!
Ray: The Zinnias produce very virile seeds, Ginnie, and they self-propagate several times each year.

There is serious work to be done here, much slurping of nectar before the day is over
Ray: Like blokes around a box of beer, Chris!

Lot's of activity here. wonderful close-ups. The flowers can be thankful with such attention.
Ray: Zinnias are successful in Thailand, Lisl. You plant one small pack of seeds, and have zinnias for life!

Even the leaves are providing sustenance for other insects, Ray. And I love the colours and activity here
Ray: There seems to be something to eat every part of every plant here, Lisl.

Great close-ups- and the zinnia is one of my favourite cottage garden flower!
Ray: I like zinnias, too, Philine...they are colourful, hardy and prolific!
Superb captures of these busy critters Ray!
Ray: This series will demonstrate how successful zinnias are in Thailand, Richard.

All go here; I like the bee getting in on the act, too. Beautiful markings on the butterflies.
Ray: They are quite pretty flutterbys, Alan.
SC is becoming a nature, trains and churches site Ray, I'm feeling a bit left out.
Ray: You don't need to feel left out, Chad...unless you want to!

There are also Cats, Boats and Canyons Sections.

And...you are Lad-in-Chief of the travel section...I understand your major project for the next few years is to wander in search of mythical Greenland.

Here...have a Hug [()]!
