I Heart Macro July 17, 2011

A couple of pics from the deck in our backyard.
The central spadix of the Spathiphyllum or Peace Lily flower

 We are having a drought and I can't remember when it last rained here.  Hubby has been helping me keep the plants watered, but most of the flowers have dried up from the heat.  I was happy to see the bloom on my Peace Lily.  I also managed to get a shot of a creepy crawly before it flew away.
Please join us at Waterstone Studio for I Heart Macro.  Add your own macro shot and check out the other wonderful pictures posted for this week.  Have a wonderful day!

  1. Fab photos! We have the opposite problem here - it has rained almost everyday since the end of April. Hoping you get some (of our) rain soon!

  2. I find the peace lily spadix quite alluring as well. Did you know that they are poisonous? Hoping you get some rain, Kym!

  4. It's nice the beautiful lily bloomed during the drought. I've seen enough stink bugs this summer to last a life time! Great shots!

  5. Thank you all and sorry about the stink bug shot. It landed while I was taking the flower pictures and although creepy, seemed serendipitous, so I couldn't help but take a shot before it flew.
