2 Flower Close-ups

Two PotDs today -- a couple of my favorite flower shots of the year. The first is a fiery zinnia called a "Show and Tell", and the second is inside a lisianthus. They were taken in late August at the Chicago Botanic Garden. I love the contrast between the two; the coolness versus the heat, the circle patterns versus the flowing tendrils, the pale green versus the zesty orange.


  1. I think the second one is probably one of my faves that you've taken, ever.


  2. Hunh, my reply never showed up. Let's try again.

    Thanks! I love that second one too, and a large part of the reason is that lisianthus itself isn't that interesting a flower; it's just a simply white bell shape. I almost skipped it altogether until I took a peek inside.
