Common zinnia

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Bob Coutant, Aug 25, 2008.

  1. At this time of year, the zinnia is my favorite flower in our yard -- even the common pink ones catch my eye. The butterflies and hummingbirds seem to agree with my preference:smile::wink:.

  3. Thanks, Greg.
    I appreciate your comments.
  4. Very nice, Bob. I like the color very much. Nice composition, too.
  5. Thanks, Tom. My wife planted seed from last year's crop, so we have quite a variety of colors -- the hummers seem to prefer the bright red ones, but they visit others as well.

    now that is nice....
  9. I certainly agree with the others Bob. It's a very simple beautiful shot... VEry well done...
  10. Jeff, Steven, Tim, and Rich -- Thanks. I took several others, but this one turned out best. The natural lighting of the flower plus a deeply shadowed background made it work out well.
