    Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

    Peter,

    Nice images.

    The second one looks like you still had it on light balance for full sun when you got some cloud over the sun. If so, a bit of warmth in colour balance would sort it.

      Prairie Lily.



      The provincial flower of Saskatchewan photographed in Saskatchewan. A slide copy.
      It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

        I've just taken my annual slither and plodge around the bottom of Cottingburn Woods in Morpeth to check out the condition of the Herb Paris (Paris quadrifolia) Pleased to say it's doing very well indeed. It's an important site because it's still present where it was when it became the one of the first plants to be classified in English botany, by WIlliam Turner in 1551 (ish)

        Quite a dense population of them:

          A lovely colour, reminds me of my day lilies. The shape of the petals and the gaps that are formed at the base is particularly attractive.

            John. I have had to turn to Google. A fascinating plant, lots of history and this shot is a belter.

              Some Eyebright, I have no chance of saying which particular one. These are tiny flowers - how do they fit all that amazing reproductive gear in there?

                Pyracantha with Crosseye Stereo

                I wanted to capture the essence of this shrub, with enough leaf to define it and an inflorescene.

                EM-1, Kiron 105, f16, 1/250. ISO 800, twin flash. (I was switching rapidly between subjects and left the ISO higher than usual for flowers).

                  A lovely start to my day. Very inspiring to go and look for this one. I believe I have seen it as it looks familiar....

                    Harold objective achieved, I have never looked at the flower before but now appreciate it and will look more carefully as I did following your Yew shots.

                        Thanks.

                        You had better be quick. Our flowers are coming to an end.

                          John,

                          A lovely image. The petals are quite like those of a number of native orchids.

                            Yes, they do, but the other way up since Orchid flowers are upside down!
