Wood lilies are blooming!

15 posts in this topic

Such a lovely little lily. I've got quite a few images of Turk's cap lilies, which have the same color and pattern but have petals that curl back underneath and drooping flower heads.

It was nice to add these to the library this morning after hearing last night they were in bloom.

All with the Canon 30D at iso400, handheld

Thanks, everyone!

Not an uncommon flower in the prairie and other midwestern states, but there aren't that many up here.

Funny how we all like things a bit different. For me the third comp wins hands down. gringrin

Here are some of mine. Not as good as Mr Steve's but ok I guess. Don't meen to hijack your thread Steve but they are the same flower. Hope you don't mind. THese were taken handheld aslo but with a 100-400L, since it was the lense most accessible at the time, so I had to stand back about 8 feet, hard to do in the wind.

IMHO it is head and shoulders above the rest. We agree.

Nice shots, Paul. The 100-400 has a minimum focus distance of six feet, so as you showed here it can make a darn fine floral lens.

Definitely can't choose a favorite between #'s 2 and 3. I think my vote goes to #3. A beautiful composition!!

    • http://shareblue.com/every-outlet-wh-banned-from-press-briefing-is-chasing-stories-on-trumps-russia-ties/   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
