Stained Glass Tulip

Purple Lily Tulip lit by afternoon sun.

Something about these Purple Dream Tulips delight me, whether considered solo, as here, or as part of a stained-glass window of a bed.

I even love how they unfold, from Champagne flute to Cabernet glass. This particular  blossom, partway unfolded, fit perfectly into a 3×2 frame. You need to shoot them low. Thank heaven for my monopod and flip-up screen or I would have been crawling down the Longwood Gardens Flower Alley on my belly.
