Morning At Botanic Gardens

Sunday morning, Carey and I headed out to the Denver Botanic Gardens. The skies were overcast and the weather was threatening to drizzle. Perfect weather for outdoor flower photos. I found this ornamental kale plant — the leaves make an interesting circular image.

The “El Pomar Waterway” is lined with aloe plants in the water channel. The walls of the waterway were painted in a deep yellow color. I chose to split the image with the yellow and white wall at the entrance of the waterway.

There are several ponds with lily pads and lotus flowers. In this image, it appears that the lotus flower and pads are in flight!

I found this open flower with two buds in the background. This just looked stunning against the huge green leaves.

We found some purple flowers. I titled this one “Purple Horn”. I think Carey captured a similar image on his website at http://inasphere.com.

One of the ponds had these huge lily pads. However, in the image below, it was the reflections of the plants in the water, at the lower left corner, that caught my eye. The red lotus flower draws the eye to this corner. Perhaps I should do some more work with this image!


Lily Pads And Reflections

I made this candid image of Carey while talking photography!

In this final image, I managed to capture two bees in this flower. The bees are always on the move, so I had to take several images, to freeze the action a little.

Soon after this, we parted ways as Carey had another appointment for the day.
