Conservatory of Flowers, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco

During my recent trip to San Francisco, [personal profile] emelbe kindly took me on extensive tours of the Conservatory of Flowers and the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. This set of photos was taken in the former (all shot with a 100 mm macro lens wide open at f/2.8).
