Cardinal flower

A flower from late summer:

These are a difficult subject unless you have good, soft light. The passing clouds were just what I needed. I shot through foliage to add the bit of green fog at the bottom.

There were also three ruby-throated hummingbirds hanging around, attracted to the cardinal flowers just as I was. They weren’t cooperative subjects, unfortunately…

  1. I really like these flowers, but agree with you on the difficult subject part. Every year I try to approach them in a bit of a different way and come up stumped! I do like the water drops.
