The last three photos in this series are about as good as I can hope to achieve with my current camera - a Nikon D7000. Getting both of the flowers and their pistils in focus in the last Turk's Caps photo was tough. "Red" is a really tough color to capture as is evident in my earlier "Turk's Caps" post. The secret this morning was that it was overcast and about to rain a little.
So many drive or walk by and never see Mother Nature's beautiful creations!!Please take time to see and smell the flowers!!
