Messing about with an 18 minute exposure… star trails. The faint diagonal dotted line is a plane. I must go somewhere with less light pollution.
The Moon. Cloudy. Far too cloudy for meteors
Grasshopper cuteness. The cat has eaten a few since I took this.
Begonia is a genus in the flowering plant family Begoniaceae and is a perennial. The only other members of the family Begoniaceae are Hillebrandia, a genus with a single species in the Hawaiian Islands, and the genus Symbegonia which more recently was included in Begonia. “Begonia” is the common name as well as the generic name for all members of the genus.
The genus name, coined by Charles Plumier, a French patron of botany, honours Michel Bégon, a former governor of the French colony of Haiti.
