Possibly my last Lady’s Slipper post for the season. Unless I find something special like this. Usually I find Lady’s Slippers early in the am before the sun has hit the sky which keeps the breezes under control and the lighting even. Pretty much what I prefer for all flower photography. But sometimes the sun can be quite an asset and in this backlit situation I liked the effect. Unfortunately, the dark side of the flower was a little too dark but a small reflector shining back onto the bloom balanced this enough to give me what I felt is a pleasing effect. I hope you agree.
