Lily Macro Series

The lily was beginning to fade when I photographed it.  But I found it quite beautiful as I got closer to it. It was amongst a group of flowers planted around a post on the street.

The young shopkeeper came out to water the flowers as I was photographing them. I thought it was very charming of him to tend to flowers that are growing on the side of the street.  Perhaps he planted them.  Anyway, they make a nice touch in an otherwise not so pretty area.





Enjoy your weekend and enjoy more flowers and beautiful scenery at the following links (click badges).

I think your mosaic is lovely and this color would brighten any dreary spot! I just stepped out to see if I could capture a butterfly who was moving way to fast for my sad camera! I have a few in a similar shade that must be hidden in tall grass. I have much work to do and need to put combat boots on to face it! (Lol)
