Credible Crocosmia

I’m experiencing some difficulty in photographing things that are red. Such as these beautiful Crocosmia flowers, also known as Lucifer. They are just not 100% in focus and I seem to experience that with many items that are red when I photograph them. But I like to composition enough to go ahead a post these images here on my Photo Blog. Last year I was fortunate enough to photograph one of these flower bunches with a hummingbird flying about. Check out that post here.

The Crocosmia flower is native to South Africa. It is not a native plant in Oregon, but it sure grows in abundance here in Oregon front yard gardens. It’s a beautiful flower. and a lovely plant. They are related to the Crocus flower which is used to produce the spice Saffron. The Crocosmia flower also gives of a scent something like Saffron, however, the spice does not come from this plant. This flower is also called Coppertips, Falling Stars, and Montbretia.

I hope you like this weeks flower photos, please share this post with your friends and connections. Be sure to also come back next week for more beautiful flowers.
