This is a close-up image of a tiger lily. The speckles and orange hue contrast to the soft garden background of greens and faint pink azaleas. The camera used was my Nikon D 5300 using a lens focal length of 280mm (55-300 Nikkormat) taken at 1/200th speed. The ISO setting was 100 (“film speed”) aperture-f stop 10, with me 5’ away; it was taken in August at 1PM with direct sunlight from slightly behind the flower. This was taken in the wild garden at Chanticleer Estate in Wayne, PA.
