I have a beautiful Oriental Stargazer Lily blooming right now and I can’t get enough. Breaking out my handmade macro lens and waited until it rained a little bit. These blooms are the size of my hand, about 8″ across and they smell amazing. One of my favorite lilies in the yard.

 

Again, the macro lens I’m using is one I made from steel rings from eBay, the glass, lens shutter and aperture from a 50mm nikon lens extended at image nodal point depths from the sensor.
