Spring flowers part 2 ~

Continuing with some Sunday photos from the Denver Botanic Gardens. Clockwise from top right: Some type of fruit tree, unidentified, tulip interior, unidentified, hellebore, unidentified, unidentified, tulip interior, poppy (I think) against a background of purple pansies, orchid (probably some type of phalaenopsis), fritillaria (checkered lily). If anyone can help with identification, please comment. My knowledge of flowers is pretty limited, and the signage was spotty. I didn’t saturate any of these photos; in fact, I frequently knocked the saturation down a bit.

Here’s some of what is blooming right now at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Clockwise from top right: Some variety of daffodil, pasque flower, parrot tulip unfurling, tulip magnolia. More to come. These were taken with my Olympus 4:3 camera with 30mm and 60mm macro lenses.

All of these were photographed at Giant City State Park, southern Illinois. Two were taken with a Pentax K-50 DSLR and three were taken with a compact Olympus SZ-12. Is the difference apparent? The images are definitely on the soft side, some more than others. It was much too windy a day to be photographing flowers, but you take what you can get. The important thing is…spring!
