I am always experimenting and trying new things.. And I push myself and everything (everybody??? LOL) I work with. This was an unbelievable challenge. Was working alone, couldn't ask Paul to help, he is allergic to pollen!
This took me quite a few tries and a number of stargazer lillies! When they freshly open, they are vibrant and pink, the older they get the bluer/purplish they become and the more orange the pollen gets...
I saw the ripe pollen, it was starting to fall, yet when I wanted to photograph it, it just stuck, so I created a small 'windtunnel', I even tried my hair drier... yes you have to be creative in every sense!
Lilium "Stargazer" (the Stargazer lily) is a hybrid lily of the Oriental group also known as Pink Tiger or Oriental Lily.
I wish you all a wonderful day, and thanx, as always, for your visit, M, (*_*)
