So I kind of ran out of time to post something today, but rather than just leave you all hanging until tomorrow (so soon after ignoring you all for two weeks) I ended up just grabbing this shot out of the archives. It’s just some flowers that I walked by one day when I was at the zoo in Seattle. I liked the colors, that’s all. No clue what kind of flowers they are, but that’s not unusual.

As for tomorrow, I can’t decide if I should post another shot from my recent trip, or if I should try to space those out a bit so that I don’t overwhelm anyone. Hmmm, I’ll sleep on it, and let you know tomorrow.

UPDATE: I figured out what these are: Camas Lilies!

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel XT, Tamron 28-300 mm VC lens. 1/100s, f/6.3, ISO 400. Focal length: 300mm.

    I like the center of the flower. It’s like floating but when you see it clearly, it’s not.

    @Erlinda: Were the same. I thought it was floating but it’s actually not. The color is good to see. It’s very bright. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice flower. It would be nice if the color is pink. I am not much an avid fan of purple color but this flower looks good to me.
