Indian Pinks

Today’s post features some wildflowers that I planted last year, for the hummingbirds that call my acreage home in the summer. The Indian Pinks (Spigelia marilandica), is a very colorful wildflower that hummingbirds are often attracted to. Here are a few images I captured the other day:

And moving in for a tight, macro image (note: during post processing, I noticed that the wind had caused some movement in the flowers … I need to go back and capture more images, using a higher ISO so that I can stop the action … or find one of those rare, windless days!) :
