Elephant Head?

Elephant Head?

I don’t actually know if Elephant’s Head is what these tiny flowers are called. Tiny? The open blossom is less then 1/4 inch across. This is another shot from Rachel Carson NWR, taken along the mile loop of trail…a loop that rarely disappoints photographically.

I took this shot from ground level, using the flip out LCD of the H50 and pointing the camera up under the blooms. From above the large pistol of the plant is not obvious, but from this angle it dominates.

Of course the bokeh is almost as interesting as the plant itself.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide and macro. F2.7 @ 1/40th @ ISO 160. Programed auto.

Cropped from the right in Lightroom for composition. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Landscape sharpen. I used some Recovery for the background.
