Foxglove
Lens: FA 50mm f2.8 macro Camera: K-3II Photo Location: Oregon Central Coast ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/160s Aperture: F2.8 
Posted By: ToddK, 08-05-2019, 05:12 AM

These plants were growing wild in the forest around the resort I was staying at, and so must have been planted around the grounds at one time. I didn't know anything about this plant, but now I know why since it is extremely poisonous. However it is beautiful to photograph.

You've got a beautiful background here Todd. Foxglove is a beautiful subject to photograph. I've seen it growing well off the beaten path here in Oregon. Although not native it has become well established throughout western Washington, Oregon and northern California.

It is a very pretty flower.

It is the plant that the medication Digitalis is derived from (used occasionally still for heart failure). I don't think it would be easy to eat enough of it to kill you, but it certainly could make you feel pretty ill for awhile if you decided to munch on it.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes I read that. It is good that they can put something like it to good use.

Once again, the FA-50 brings home the bacon. Nice bokeh and crisp sharpness. Very nice work, Todd, but I've come to expect that from you.
