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.

Holy crimany, Steve! What you can't find to take some photos of! I like the third with both color contrast and some great texture/pattern!

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

    • She cant stand Needs a chair to sit on Clint happens to have a nice one.  You might be too old to get this then but don't blame your lack of comprehension on anything but yourself. Maybe your heart meds need tweaking or alzheimers is kicking in?
    • most reports in this area very poor way to much water  
    • Lone wolf but they are expensive. Muddy brand is not bad!
    • I bought the work shop and like it, It dose take a little practice from not pushing down to hard on the knife wihci allows it to drop below the guide, pluse the arching of the tips of knives can be challenging. I know theres an tension adjuster but it only adjust so much, go use kid gloves it seems. but i do like it
    • I'm up on it.  But bring on the translator.  I don't speak stoner.
    • Try to keep up with the conversation. If you need a translator let me know and I can try to round one up.
    • My WorkSharp arrived last week and I have been very impressed with how quick and easy it is to use and how nice it is to once again have kitchen knives that can cut 1/16-1/8 inch tomato slices with ease.
    • I actually wanted Ted but I considered him Lying Ted because of his agreement to support the nomination and he didn't until now.  Switching things around I would be voting Trump with a D behind his name then.  You are the crowd-follower who would be voting for any candidate with the L behind his name including Hillary.   Glad we agree you are supporting Hillary and will own everything she does if she wins.
    • Gary Johnson is not the solution to any of those issues has he has zero chance of winning.  Get your tin foil hat ready for the nuclear holocaust.  By the way who said spending and the deficit isn't on the list as I said I just named a few?  So as usual in your elitist way of thinking you are wrong again.
    • All I know is that the local gun shop was packed today and I was told that I would probably have to wait until after the election to have any chance of finding what I'm looking for. Sheesh people........haven't you already buried enough guns in the backyard over the last 8 years?
