Lynn’s been busy in our back garden and suddenly it’s even more photogenic. Lots of new plantings / flowers and they’ve attracted some interesting visitors. I’ve been keeping a camera at the ready so I can go out quickly and see what’s happening.
The Bird of Paradise plants are a new treat. They’re blooming and I couldn’t resist making some photos.
This blue bit is the stamen – I like this composition more than one I made of the entire flower. I left a small piece of the rest of the bloom in the bottom left of the frame for context.
Bees and Butterflies seem as happy with the new garden as I am.

I briefly spotted some Ruby-throated Hummingbirds too. But in my excitement to let Lynn know, I let go of the screen door too quickly and the noise was enough to drive them off. I’ll be more careful next time and hopefully get some photos of them as well.
I’m very lucky that Lynn has set up such nice photo ops for me! I can’t wait to see what else she arranges in front of my lens.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go make some photos!

Great stuff! Panoramic landscapes are spectacular, but tight close-ups on nature are just as marvellous, aren’t they.
Thanks Rhona! Yes, closeups can be just as lovely as grand landscapes and it’s good to have a reminder of that every so often.
Fantastic that your wife and you complement each others so well..Bravo! Keep up the good work! Beautiful images!
Thank you Dorothy! And yes, I’m very happy that Lynn likes to garden.
