I played with depth of field while photographing this Siberian Iris this morning. I shot more than 30 images of this same flower, and found this one to be my favorite. While the flower is sharp, the background has a very shallow depth of field, making the bloom appear to float—love me some of that bokeh!

Broom

19 05 2011

Broom (Cytisus pseudoprocumbens; C. diffusus; native to Europe). Brooms can be either evergreen or semi-evergreen and are deciduous shrubs that tolerate (and even thrive in) poor soils and growing conditions and need little care (how many plants can you say that about?!). They are native to Europe, north Africa and southeast Asia. I photographed these buds against a backdrop of deep purple Siberian Irises at Green Spring Gardens.

Siberian Iris photographed at Green Spring Gardens

Special note to Jim Grey (www.jimgrey.wordpress.com): Yes, I did notice that this is yet another purple flower. I can’t help it—I’m photographing what nature is giving me most of this time of year. At least I did photograph some white blooms for you today!)

Siberian Iris (Iris sibirica)

3 05 2011

I photographed these Siberian Irises (Iris sibirica) at Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, Virginia. Special thanks to newly-enrolled-Master-Gardener-hopeful and fellow Nikonian, Mike, who offered to hold the diffuser for me while I got this shot!

Overcast (but unusually bright) skies (perfect for flower photography) + a gazillion things in bloom at Green Spring Gardens = photographer’s heaven!

Peekaboo

28 04 2009

Yet another case of “I didn’t see that little guy when I was getting this shot.” Look in the center of this Siberian Iris—there’s a tiny green bug staring directly at you! I’m pretty sure this little bug is a Katydid nymph Scudderia. I photographed him/her at the Huntsville Botanical Garden last week.

Click here to see what one looks like up close and personal in a photograph I shot and posted on my blog last year.
