Blackberry or Leopard Lily

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 25 January 2009 in Plant & Nature.

This is not a true lily; it belongs to the iris family (belamcanda chinensis). These are seed pods from my garden that have dried and opened up. I added a texture by adrisbow from flickr.

Last summer I posted a series of 4 images of this flower in bloom. You may see them starting here.

Looks like one of those 18th-century engravings. Nice work.

This is gorgeous, Anita. Before I read about the texture I thought that you had shot this while it was snowing. Very well done.
