My backyard is blooming
Waking up this morning I was surprised to see that there was a vibrant patch of red in a sea of green.
So when I had free time and the rain had stopped, I took my camera and went out into my backyard and shot a few photos of this curious 'flowering'.
I have no memory of seeing this flower before this. maybe I was just not looking out my windows enough.
The petals remind me of confetti, and coconut candy.
Looks like its getting ready to burst like pop-corn!
Lets take a closer look.
Ah, its coming ! Doesnt it remind you of pop-corn??
What a curious plant.
So after getting bored with the curious plant, I went back to the familiar plant, the water lily.
Looks like painted fingernails. can see some movement blur as I was taking the shots handheld, and there was a steady gust of wind blowing.
Going in close 1:1 Boosting ISO well over 1000.
At times like this, I suppose its handy to have a macro lens on hand :) Thanks Foosi!
