Quadrillium, thrillium…why not thrillya and trillia?
Unless something really special presents itself, this will be the last for 2016. One reason I like photographing these so much is the variability of the petal edges. This one really appealed for its ruffled lines as well as the contrast against the darker green, another variable in this plant. I think that they are like snowflakes…no two are exactly alike.
When I purchased my Venus Laowa 15mm macro lens last year, it was with shots like this in mind.
I’ve still got some learning to get confident with the lens, but I am getting there. What I am not getting is more limber with age. Shots like this require a flat layout on the ground and you know what that means…I have to get up. Not so easy anymore. 🙂
