I had a very slow start in my blogging with just the occasional post and sometimes went a few weeks or more without one.  Obviously I haven’t had a problem posting lately.  Quite a flurry from me.  I have made it to #500 and we’ll see where it goes from here.

This is a series of Canada Lily ( Lilium canadense ) shots from Sunday morning.

Canada-Lily-1-071915-700Web Canada-Lily-2-071915-700Web Canada-Lily-interior-071915-700WebThese plants can grow to 6 or 8 feet tall, making it much easier to see inside the flowers which are always in a droop it seems.  I am not sure if I will get a chance to shoot a wood lily this year which blooms in an opposite position…facing straight up toward the sun.

    Congrats on 500. I like lilies. This one has a nice downward facing hang to it. Well done. Looking forward to your future posts at whatever pace you wish.

  3. I like photo number one the best. The dark, background suits the orange perfect.

    It’s a beautiful lily, and that’s an interesting note about the wood lily facing upward.

    A question — is anyone else finding the USDA plant distribution map suddenly non-fuctional? It’s been working fine for me, but the last two days I only get the slider on the side, and the tabs on top. I poked around a little and found a comment from the USDA that the maps don’t work on Forestry Service computers, but no indiction why. They said they were going to try and address the issue, so perhaps they’re involved in some tweaking. I just need to know if the problem lies with me or with them. 🙂

    “It’s 3:40 in the morning — do you know where your plants distribution map is? ”
    “Why yes, yes, I do — it’s back and functioning just as it should. Now I can go back to sleep happy.”

    • And I thought I was the only one lying awake thinking about these things. 🙂

      Still haven’t figured out my gravatar issue. It says that I am signed in and shows my chosen image as active, but I still get that green thing.

      Happy dreams.


  7. Great texture, especially in the last picture.


    • With most flowers, I think, we will see more texture with the increase in size within the image. Sometimes too much maybe. I will be posting another flower shortly that is just covered with texture.
