Double Late Tulip ‘Orange Princess’

1 05 2018

Double Late Tulip ‘Orange Princess’ (I’m hunting bulbs these down for my garden!) They’re simply stunning blooms–love the green streaks that run through the orange and yellow. This particular shot isn’t heavy on the green striations; I’ll share one that shows more of this color contrast. This was shot with the new Nikon D850 and the Nikkor 105mm micro lens.

Genie in a bottle

30 04 2018

Some of the tulips yesterday had missing petals, so I was able to photograph an angle that I wouldn’t normally see with a flower. This tulip had one petal missing and the wind blew the other petals together, forming this “genie in a bottle” effect.

This image was shot with my iPhone 7+, and I used the Camera+ app in macro mode. The wind made captures hit or miss at the beginning of the session, so I’m happy I was able to get some shots like this one. I also got some shots with my new D850 and Nikkor 105mm micro lens.

On the cover: What says “spring” more than colorful tulips? I was photographing this bed of flowers and was standing on the edge of the wall when this little girl, clad in a princess skirt with sparkly shoes, came running around the corner. I got this one shot and she was gone. Serendipity!

Tulip ‘Red Riding Hood’

14 04 2011

Native to Pakistan, the ‘Red Riding Hood’ Tulip (Tulipa greigii) was introduced in 1953 by a Dutch company. What makes this cultivar so unusual are the red and green variegated leaves. The inside of the flower is scarlet with a black throat. Gina brought these bulbs back from Amsterdam and they are now in full bloom in Karen’s front yard garden.
