Fading Tulips

We had a pot of Tulips decorating the house but, as all flower do, they began to fade and wilt.  There are some potted plants that do well here in SW Florida but tulips aren’t one of them without a lot of care.  So, they were off to the horticultural recycling bin.  As I took them out though, the texture of the wilting leaves caught my eye and I decided to take a few shots.  I had the Nikkor 70-300mm VR on the camera so I just picked it up, put the pot on a ledge with grass and plants in shadow and took a series of images.

Here is how they turned out.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
