.. for Friday the thirteenth.
Pictures of Lily continued, continued. I just had to get up close and personal with those incredible stamens. They look good enough to eat to me :)

Wow, great details and color in those provocative stamens!

Sharp! But gotta agree with Alun, scarey Hydra time!
Surprised it's not a picture of yesterday's activities, given your name!

@CElliottUK: An asteroid shower? :) I lay in the garden and saw three good ones
I know these as tiger lilies - and you've captured these beautifully. This shot could almost be a Flower Playboy centrefold :)

A wonderful macro! The dream of a summer night ... for a painter! How wonderful to copy these great colors that only nature is capable of presenting for fans! An ideal composition shows erudción perfectly and intimate part of the flowers! Magnificent grouser! Best regards. Adela

as a biology teacher, I find this very detailed and instructive....I think that my students will enjoy this view in the lesson about reproduction...(with your permission....[ or not :) ] .....)
as apodromos..... (dont know much about biology)...and I simply love this picture....

@apodromos: Sure as long as no sales, religion or politics are involved. Evolution is fine:)
I suppose they do look good enough to eat, though I think the
background resembles watermelon and I'm not sure the 2 go
together. Incredible color saturation and sharpness.

truly mesmerizing and stunning! Did you get yourself a new toy? or have you had the 105macro lens for a while? It is one that have on the top of my wishlist... can't wait to see more shots...
13 Aug 2010 11:29am
@Marion: Nope, it's the standard zoom that came with the camera. I just use the one lens.
There´s something just a little alien about this flower !! Nice macro !!

Don't know much about your culinary tastes, but they look too much like red hot chillies to me.

Didn't realise until now how much the stigma resembles the head of a mantis,exceptional shot Grouse.
