Attention Cat Lovers!

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Uncle Frank, May 19, 2005.

  1. I did a little research on the flower I snapped this afternoon, and was surprised to find the ASPCA has the Orange Day Lily (Hemorocallis
    graminea
    ) on their list of poisonous plants. The only species known to be affected by it are cats, in which it can cause "vomiting,
    inappetence, lethargy, and kidney failure."

    Beautiful shot Frank, and I will pass this info on to all the cat persons I know.
     
  6. Hey Frank,

    Thanks for the heads up on that one!. We don't have such flowers, but you'd never know if/when somebody brings them as a gift :shock::lol: They are, and your specimen is, very beautiful. From the EXIF, at 70mm, it was probably taken with the Beast, huh? :) 
     
  7. Yes, the Beast is my constant companion these days. And the bokeh isn't bad either 8).
     
  8. What a beautiful shot! I love the colors!!
     
  9. Thanks, Kevin. It's interesting that something that's deadly is also so beautiful.
