1400 Species of DayLilies


This time of year day-lilies grow wild in the Midwest.


I always looked forward to their return in the early summer. However...I stumbled across a person who raises daylilies....I mean hundreds...probably 1000s of daylilies. He has over 1400 different species planted around his lake and in beds ...everywhere you look this time of year!

This was a great opportunity for me to captures some macro shots of the flowers...something I often forget about. I am so busy usually trying to take in the big picture...I forget about the world seen up close.

Tomorrow and the the next day I will be posting some macro shots of the lilies.

Thanks Dianne...I have about two days or so of macro shots coming. It was a treat to take the macro shots...I often forget about the macros.
