I’m Thinking I Probably Have Too Many Flower Photos

I probably have more flower photos than Carter has little pills – here a few of them (flower photos; not pills).


Below is a zinnia with the bloom not yet fully developed.


Another zinnia.


I wish I had a dollar for every photo I’ve ever had of a coneflower.


I’m not positive but I think this is some sort of lantana.


I’m pretty sure this is a coneflower just beginning to bloom.


This zinnia is the same variety as the on at the top of the page but at a later development stage.  It is my second favorite zinnia variety in my garden.  My favorite one is very similar to this but the color pattern is reversed.  The tips of the petals are red with the insides yellow.  Both grew to heights of three and four feet.


Thank you for visiting my blog.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Sigma 105mm macro lens.

    • Thanks Steve. I’ve gotten pretty good about remembering to check my background when shooting macros but I can’t take credit for that. Sometimes the colors come out or get transfigured a bit during post processing.

    • Thank you Eliza and I’m going with you on the yarrow. Now that you mention it I do have a yarrow plant in the garden with small pink or red flowers. It’s in the same garden as all the other flowers in this post while the lantana is over by the bird bath. In just two and a half years I’ve accumulated so many flower photos I don’t know what to do. Well I do know, I need to do some serious curating and just save the best of the best. At best that’s like making a New Year’s resolution; more than likely not going to happen.


    • Thank you Maverick. The thing is I have all those photos, plus the original, raw .nef files sitting on a hard drive not doing anything. I never go back and look at them unless I’m looking for something specific to print for around the house. It’s just a weird almost guilty feeling that I have too many. Maybe I could offer a photo curating class and assign a hundred or so photos to each student and guide and critique their curating skills. I would have them put all their “saves” in one folder and all their get rid “ofs” in another. Eighty to ninety percent of my work would be done because I would just skim their results for any minor adjustments. Bottom line is they pay me to solve my problem. It’s a win win for me me. 🙂
