Peony Poppy - 2015 Otago Wildlife Photography Competition winner in the Plant Category. Tech details if you are interested…photographed in a light tent, two flashes, Nikon D7100 and 50mm f1.8 lens at f8.
A sort of triptych I suppose, but in one image. From the early stage to the full bloom and then the seed head. Superbly grown by Cheryl from seeds supplied by her friend Linda. We are now looking forward to growing the black flower this summer - stay tuned!
