Slowly But Surely II
Durham, North Carolina (April 2014)

An early contribution to #treetuesday (+Tree Tuesday), courtesy of my 50mm 1.8 Canon lens. This cheap lens is one of my favorites, as it sometimes surprises me with what it actually focuses on despite my own diligent efforts. :)

Thank you, +Thomas Gillingham. I was a bit surprised how well the light came out after I did the conversion. :)

Spanish Bluebell (Hyacinthoides hispanica)
Coker Arboretum, Chapel Hill, NC (2013)

I'm not as up on my flower/tree/plant identification skills as I should be, but its especially nice to share images of those we can identify to help other folks do it, too. :)
