Chaumont Barrens

Today was bright overcast, perfect for photographing wildflowers and I went to Chaumont Barrens hoping that the Yellow Lady Slippers were blooming. I found only one of them, a rather small one, but there were other flowers including the Red Columbine above. The background is a collapsible diffuser/reflector/shade that I carry for flower photography. I placed it behind the flower to cover the confusing background and make the bloom stand out. Canon 7D, 28-135mm lens with an extension tube.

  1. Great shot. Columbine is a favorite flower of mine.
