One thing I enjoy about photographing tropical fruits is the strange beauty these plants and trees possess.  Whether it is the fruit or the flowers each crop can be completely different.  Recently, I have been able to connect my digital camera to a Leica microscope for high magnification photographs of lychee (above right), mango, and avocado flowers. Below are mamey and green sapote pictures.
