I had quite a time with setting up this photo of these day lilies blooming against a power pole...I wanted to shoot it with a black poster board background and tried unsuccessfully to lean it against the pole but the background kept tipping over. Then I tried masking tape but it didn't stick to the pole on a humid day.. I finally used duct tape and it stayed aboard long enough for me to shoot this picture...Persistence paid off:) That is what makes photography interesting!

Best view in light box! Thank you!

    Thank you all for your appreciated comments..and a special thanks to Andrew Dutton for
    his nomination...i thought of just shooting the flowers without the background but wanted to
    minimize the foliage around it which I held back with the background....and concentrate on
    the petals, the buds, the stamen and the stamen section of the flower from the angle that I shot it, I found a dictionary online of the parts of a day lily which I will include in a link following my comment.
