May 192010

I posted some great YELLOW BLOOMS in April… and now see that I should have saved that posting for May. Compared to those flowers, these are bit more orange than yellow. I am figuring out the names of the flowers and will go back to previous flower blog pages and add names IF I can figure them out.  The first flower on this page was easy.

Sunflowers.  Desert Landscape Flower. Note the Mexican Brick Wall in the background.

ISO 80, f/8, 1/200 7.7 mm  9am.  One flower retouched to repair a bug eaten hole. Certainly wished I had noticed it while photographing because it was in every one of the photos!


Orange Jubilee – Desert Landscape Bush (Just down the road from the Sunflowers, found in that “crowded” development.)

ISO 80, f/8, 1/160 7.7 mm  8am.  Cropped to bring more attention to the bee. Tweaked levels a bit.  Blurred background a bit more than it was already.


Orange Jubilee – Desert Landscape.  I had to show another of these flowers as they are so pretty!

ISO 80, f/8, 1/200 7.7 mm  8:10 am.  Not tweaked.


California Poppy – a desert wildflower. This is the flower that I was taking a photo of when I went back to see what those insects were…

ISO 80; f/8; 1/250; 7.7mm ; 8:40 am.  Slight crop.


Orange Globe Mallow — a desert wild flower.

ISO 80, f/8, 1/200 7.7 mm  9am.  Not tweaked.
