I'm a Photographer and not a Botanist











I'm a photographer and not a botanist!

I love shapes, the colors and the light in this beautiful flower, but I don't know the name for it.

I'm sure, out there in this world of bloggers is one, or more experts who can tell me the correct name for this colorful plant, yes? I'm looking forward for your answers and comments. Thank you in advance.

If I'm not mistaken it's a flame lily... which is indigenous to Zimbabwe.

Hi Jenty,

thank you so much for taking your time and telling me the name for this gorgeous flower.

The name makes sense for me, thank you!

Love your blog Susanne! You are a wonderful photographer. I will return regularly since I think I could learn a lot just by observing your work.

Liked the macro work here. I am in the market for a macro capable lens for my Canon d30. Any recommendations?

Susanne49 said...

for your wonderful compliment. I know that you are in the same boat like me, you are a excellent photographer and not a Botanik either.:-)

Hi Susanne, Jenty is right it is very definitely a flame lily. We have some growing in our garden. They are never disappointing

Susanne49 said...

Hi Max-e

thank you and Jenty so much for your big help to find the correct name to this flower. Flame Lilly, what a nice name for this beautiful flower, it really looks like flames.

Thanks for taking your time and visiting my blog.
