Flowers 2018

Chris Wright Photo Trips

I wanted to share some of my favourite flower photographs from this year, both wild and domestic. My knowledge on flower names is a tad lacking so how about we make this a collaborative effort and I’ll let you provide the names where I have missed them? That way, we will all gain some more knowledge on the names.

  1. Hi Chris,
    No. 7 from the top (Pink) ….We used to have these in South Africa and they called them Lantana……They were thought of as a weed and grew everywhere. I see here they are cultivated as a decorative house / garden plant. Yes, just Googled it and that is what it is. Lovely photos as always…Thank you

  2. Great job on isolating the blossoms, Chris, & good discipline in featuring ‘perfect’ but unique blossoms.

      Thanks Lynn, it can be a challenge to find flowers in good condition. As to the isolating, the new longer focal length macro lens (105) is assiting on that.

  3. I don’t think that 8 to 11 are Asters. I believe they are Rudbeckia (aka Black- eyed-Susan or Coneflowers).
