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!!

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
