We Love Those Lilies! by Diane Schuster

Hummingbirds closing in on some beautiful lilies, looking for their favorite nectar. Soooo many beautiful lilies in one spot, there’s got to be some goodies in there somewhere. Yum!
There are red lilies in the background and a hummingbird is coming in from that direction. He is so far back that you can hardly see him. Then these 3 are busy trying to figure out which lily they will claim. A wonderful image to have in your head before breakfast. Great for digestion!

This image was started with a soft blurred background of red Asian lilies and one hummer. Then working with layers in photoshop, I used apply image and merged the single hummer into the picture. The forground pink Asian lilies and 2 hummers coming into the scene were added as composites. Using blending modes I created the 3 dimensional effect of further away and closer to the front.

Original images taken in my Shady Cove, Oregon garden.
Images taken with an Olympus E-520 camera and a 70-300 mm lens at 300mm.

I’m a 66 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.

  • Wow! I didn’t know that they used my image until you pointed it out, Lois. However If they use my image, I will have to use another one. The last time that I used the same image,when one of mine was used as an example, the group replaced the example with another one. I’m very honored, thanks for telling me, Lois and thanks for the great comments and fav, I sure appreciate it! (:-)) Big Smile!!!!!! Dee
