Lol Kelly's comment! Yes they are red hot pokers - I have some here but this is a really good image of them - I like the use of dof to get just a hint of the others at the different heights.

(On a gardening issue mine are not doing so well in recent years - can't work out why) Viv

I'm going with Torch Lily. Around here they like to call me Torch, don't ask why please. Although Red Hot Poker has more flare!
Be Cool, don't freeze...

I have never seen one of these before, but they look similar to our purple clovers. Great shot. I am with viv on the dof. I would add that the (petals?) could be a little sharper in the foreground here. Well done here. And Good Morning to ya up there don't cha know! Smile

Very unusual flowers, worthy of a photograph. I know it's simply a preference thing, but the color in the background intrudes a little on my viewing experience. I fully well realize what you were going for, and I agree that there's precidence for it, it's just that in this one picture I like the top, darker background more.
