Notes from the field, essays, and observations.
I found this in the woods, off a trail, but it’s probably not a native plant:
I love flower groupings like this…
It floats from the depths of nature into our souls. How beautiful.
Thanks so much!
Lovely image, Tom. I like the way you have the receding buds in diminishing focus adding so much depth to the image.
Thanks, Steve – lately, it’s been F4 and be there for me.
Thanks for commenting and stopping in. I just visited your blog – lovely photography, love the blog layout and design.
Wonderful photo. I like how the two flowers are clear, and the buds fade out in the distance.
Thanks for commenting and your kind words – I’m growing more and more fond of using less depth of field instead of more.
this may be Nodding Onion, Allium cernuum. Which is a native.
or narrowleaf wild leek, Allium burdickii. Also a native.
Thanks for the ID information! I looked at http://plants.usa.gov, another possibility is Allium canadense (meadow garlic). Had to tell apart – but this flower head wasn’t nodding, it was parallel to the ground.
I like groupings like this too. This is obviously a tiny flower. You’ve captured the colour, detail and beauty of this plant. Thank you. Liked. More please! ;OD
Thanks, Janina – there are always more, I’m way behind on editing images. It wasn’t *that* tiny – I just used an ordinary macro lens for this image.
Very nice group Tom. I think I have seen these, they are quite small right? I can relate to the challenge of identification!
Thanks Mark. Not that small, really – the whole flower head was a couple of inches across, maybe a bit less. each flower was small. I used a macro lens, can’t remember if I was at minimum focus distance or not.
This is fantastic, Tom! Excellent showcase of masterful use of DOF. Watching the photo I feel like falling into it.
Thanks for the kind works, Tomas. I’ve learned to love shooting with wide apertures.
Very nicely photographed.
