Lily from the 'backside'...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 9 May 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Since we are studying "Old Testament Stories from the BackSide" by J. Ellsworth Kalas, in our Bible study, a little liberty was exercised in titling this shot.

SONY DSLR-A100 1/250 second F/5.6 ISO 100 150 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Great angle, and another beautiful macro with amazing light......

Geez, doesn't it suck getting older????? If it's not one thing with an am3'er, it's something else with another!!! But it's great to have the support of all the other am3'ers,,,this site is a blessing in disguise!!

@Susan: Thank you, Susan.
Yes, this is the first I've stated publicly, and I'm thrilled w/my kidney specialist at Moffitt.
Mike & I are at peace w/what's ahead, and praying for a tumor removal and clear margins!!!
You're right; this site and its people are truly blessings.
