Just Bloomed Posted on July 19, 2014 by Sheila Creighton Posted in Art Tagged close up, copyright, lily, macro, orange, photography, purple, stamen 13 Comments A beautiful lily I have in a pot on the patio, bloomed this morning. I’m always amazed it survives in the ceramic pot that stays outside all winter. © Sheila Creighton 2014 Share this:ShareFacebookEmailTwitterPinterestLinkedInTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related
Okay, that is just simply amazing.
thanks, Paula – lilies are amazing flowers.
Gorgeous! I have never observed an anther so up-close and personal…..surviving the winter in a pot outdoors, I would say those stamens have stamina for sure!
thanks, Cynthia! stamina for sure…lol
thank you – getting right in there.
Just amazing, I have to ask what macro lens do you use Sheila?
thanks, Lee. This is shot with a macro filter.
Wow! I didn’t know they were that good and thanks for the info.
That purple against the orange is wonderful. Great sharpness in both stamen (?) too.
thanks – the little anthers are on the ends of the stamens.
I love seeing the contrast between the deep purple and the bright orange, it’s beautiful
thanks – they are such intense flowers.
