On New Year’s Eve day I photographed the pendant inflorescence (husband speak for “hanging-down flower”) of a bromeliad that belongs to the genus Vriesea, shown in the lefthand part of this diptych. When I turned around to continue walking in the Selby Garden’s conservatory, I almost ran into its very, very distant relative shown in the righthand part of the diptych.

Singled out by the sun, this hybrid bromeliad is within the genus Guzmania, says biologist husband David. Selby specializes in bromeliads.

These are some of the buttress roots of the Moreton Bay fig tree (Ficus macrophylla) at Selby. If you click on the image for a larger version, you can just make out an invasive brown anole (Anoles sagrei) about a fourth of the way in from the left and a third of the way up from the bottom of the photograph. Many people around here incorrectly call this lizard a gecko.
