Blackberry lily

To give you a break from the onslaught of Slaty Skimmer images, I present to you Blackberry lily blooms (also known as Toad lily) photographed at Green Spring Gardens. Kudos to the horticulture staff for the juxtaposition of these bright orange flowers against the deep purple Smoke bush!

Rudbeckia blooms

I spent quite a bit of time photographing this variety of Rudbeckia at Green Spring Gardens this past Saturday morning. The light was so beautiful! I experimented with a variety of angles, compositions and creating extreme bokeh in order to best capture what I saw.

Hoverfly on Rudbeckia bloom

Hoverfly (or Flower Fly) on a type of Rudbeckia (don’t know specific type); photographed at Green Spring Gardens. Flower flies are very tiny (usually about 1/4 inch from head to tip of tail), but this one was even tinier!
