    This is one of the elegant flowers in the plant world. It has great looking flowers and beautiful leaves. In fact, it is also called fawn lily or trout lily because of its leaves.

    Beautiful blooms. How did they get the name Trout Lilies?

    Very nice Doug. The bright yellow and lush greens are a great color combination.

    Thanks, Ben. I will.
    Thanks, Alan. The leaves have those brownish splotches like the sides of some trout. They look a little browner than they do in these images.

    Thanks a lot, Jameel. I have always loved flowers so when I took up photography seriously to provide examples in my geology classes, I had to find something else to photograph when I wasn't on the road doing geology images. In my home state of Illinois that was wildflowers.

    Thanks, Jim. I had to lie on the ground to take that second one so I used my diffusion tent because the ground was wet. Little did I know that the sticks poking out of the ground without leaves were poison ivy. After I finished photographing I rolled up the tent and put it on my shoulder. The next day I had poison ivy all over my neck.

    Beautiful "portraits" :)
    The first one is my favorite, because I don't like the artifial looking black background in the second.

    Thanks for that comment on the second one, Carlo. It turns out I was playing around making flower images really stand out from their backgrounds by turning the backgrounds black and these images were mixed in with my regular images and I accidently selected the wrong one. I have replaced the black background one with the natural one above. I didn't notice I had done that until you pointed it out. I appreciate your comments on my images. Please keep it up.
