Widow'sTears
Contest Number: 165 Contest Theme: Flowers Lens: Pentax DA 55-300 AF Camera: PENTAX K 1 Shutter Speed: 1/30s Aperture: F22 
Posted By: MASTERFIRE, 05-03-2020, 11:41 AM

Family: Commelinaceae (ko-mel-ih-NAY-see-ee)
Genus: Commelina (kom-uh-LIN-uh)
Species: coelestis (koh-el-ES-tis)

That such beauty grows wild in certain corners of my property is astounding. You can cover the bloom with a nickle and I did use a combination of closeup lenses and a little crop to bring the view closer. I chose f16 to increase depth of field. As a presentation image for this contest, I added the vignette to help focus the eye on the minute glory of this "Day Flower." or "Spider Wort." ... "Widow's Tears" is a great name. I shot it last June and look forward to seeing them flourish again. ...love...
