With the Academy Awards having taken place recently, I thought I’d do this emerging tulip as a cinemascope image.

Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D

FEATURED in the Flowering Bulbs Group, March 2, 2012

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Lovely… I like tulips. Mine are starting to pop up in my garden since we have had the mildest winter in my entire lifetime. I send my regards Dot.

  • Hi Debra! Thanks so much! Too warm here for the bulbs…guess they need a cold rest period…so I have to buy tulips if I want them. Hope everything is going well with you!

    Great idea beautifully executed, Dot! (When you win an honor with this one, though, do keep your acceptance speech short…)! ;-D

  • You mean I might get the hook? LOL
    Thanks so much, Monnie!
