Pineapple Lily in bloom

27 07 2010

Earlier this month, I posted a photo of a Pineapple Lily in pre-bloom stage here. Today the plants were just starting to bloom at Green Spring Gardens and I was able to get a plethora of images. In fact, I spent about 20 minutes photographing just one bed of these plants! They were full of very tiny ants and an occasional wasp. More photos to come.

Zowie!

27 07 2010

Overcast and very pleasant day, perfect for a quick (and fruitful) lunchtime shoot at Green Spring Gardens. This is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail on a ‘Zowie’ Zinnia. I wish the edge of the right wing was a tad sharper, but I had to move quickly to even get this shot! Stay tuned, more images to come.

Ant Bee

20 07 2010

Sorry, it’s late, I’m tired, and I just couldn’t think of a better title for this photo (see the tiny ant on the upper left bud?). As soon as I typed it, I thought of Aunt Bea from Mayberry R.F.D. I’m hitting the hay. Goodnight, Opie.
