Easter Lily-Badlands Style

Friends, This is the Sego Lily that blooms in the Badlands in late June.  The solitary plants grow among the grasses on tall stalks and are best viewed in the early morning after a over-night rainstorm.  The raindrops and early light accentuate the colors and provide diffuse light for good wildflower photography.   We had watched the sunrise at Scoria Point and on our way back to camp, found these lovely blooms.  During this season when we are all looking at Easter Lilies, I thought I would show you my Lily in the Badlands.  So Happy Easter! til Tomorrow MJ

Sego lily-fine art photography

Friends, the Sego Lily grows in the badlands of North Dakota among other places.  When i examined this bud with my macro lens, i fell in love with all the colorful veining present in the unopened bud. When the flower opens, it has three white petals with magenta toward the centers.  The root can be a food source when roasted.  I know that the background is grainy, but i like it that way. This is my vain attempt at fine art photography, what do you think? til Tomorrow MJ
