Lantana camara
Common Names: lantana, shrub verbena
Family: Verbenaceae (verbena or vervain Family)


The unripe berries are known to be very toxic and the foliage toxic to livestock. Lantana is listed as a Category I invasive exotic species by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council, which means that it is known to be "invading and disrupting native plant communities in Florida." Lantana is also invading natural areas in Texas and is a huge problem in Hawaii.

Time I returned to posting here.

Don't know what it called but monarch butterflies like it and the flowers have red buds and yellow insides.

Tammie 90 on the a700.

All taken with Sigma 70-200 f4 and some combination of closeup filters and flash.

Burst of flash from Sony 56 off to the right to get the shadows as I wanted.


Orchid of some sort.


Not sure why this is so soft... possibly the closeup filters I used?

But this was taken in the Botanical Gardens in Riga


It's funny, but these guys were taken in the Botanical Gardens too
