Cleome (klee-OH-me) - Spider Plant. Annual!

Always looks so robust in the late summer garden when everything esle is wilting. Lovely shot, Kevin.

Hi guys and thanks for the compliments, Janet thanks so much for the ID. I am useless in indetifying the floral world You are right on target with the wilting thing, these were the only things that didn't look run down

Nice, very nice.

How did you do it? Lights?

Is it the Nikkor 200mm/f4 D lense?

Wonderful photo! So nice to see. It is completely blurred at the background....is that due to your apeture setting or did you fix that with editing software afterwards? Or is it a mixture of both?

Thanks for the kind words guys!! The blurring was from the aperature setting, I was shooting handheld and didn't want to go much lower on shutter speed. There was a shadowy area behind the flower and it came out as black, shot with no other lighting. The lens is the 200 Micro and my VISA still hasn't recovered!!
