Zinnia Delights - Take Two!




The animation from the last post was fun but needs some work (anyone got suggestions - using iPhoto, I don't have PS or PSE), so for now I'll show the photos here as have done in the past.

One photo per day, finishing today except for a missed day between image 2 and 3. Enjoy!










8th December

That's better, I like good definition. Maybe I'll be able to work out a better animation one day!

Hope you find pieces of joy, beauty and contentment in your day/evening too!

UPDATE!!!!!!
The following ten days of  this flower's opening are here for your further enjoyment!

Sharing at And Then She Snapped, This or That Thursday, Sneak Peek, I Heart Macro.

I used to think zinnias were so ordinary until I planted and started photographing them. They really are full of personality and delight. Great job capturing the almost daily progress.

Absolutely beautiful! It must be lovely to have a garden to appreciate (and record) the gradual opening of a flower.

beautiful macros. fantastic work; )

Magda said...

I think I agree with you for now Pieces of Sunshine... seeing the Zinnia unfold in this way is lovelier. Either by scrolling, or with the slide-show.
Beautifully done photos too...
Thank you from Magda and Crew in Australia

I was amazed at the pattern the bud made when fully closed. Such abundance of beauty in each step of it's unfolding and you caught them perfectly with your lens.

Wow wow wow - I can see the flower blossoming. Amazing shots!

You can always make a slideshow in iPhoto and then upload it somewhere?

Such an amazing difference between your first and last shot, which is why i so enjoy your sequencing shots. Beautiful shade of pink too. How's everyone's health going with all the colds. Did you ended up getting one?

Eventhough you got so many comments that I think everyone had said what I liked to say. Beautiful colors. And there are a lot of plants can be saw.
I don't take the time.
Have a nice evening (day).
