Photo-of-the-Day / 2012-04-06 / Funky Flower

April 6, 2012


I have no idea what kind of flower this is!  Maybe one of my “green thumb” followers can enlighten me.  In the meantime, I’m calling it my “Funky Flower”. 

It is one of my favorite flower photos just because it has kind of an artsy and surreal look.  I remember taking the photo during our family’s annual July golf weekend at McGuire’s Resort in Cadillac, Michigan in 2009.  

Golf courses are known to have beautiful landscaping, and McGuire’s is no exception.  We were out on the 18-hole Spruce Course, and I’m pretty sure I had the telephoto lens on my camera at the time (not a macro)!  The reason for the long lens was so that I could photograph members of our golf outing from a distance, golfers on the hole ahead of us, and golfers on the hole behind us.  I was in “stealth mode”.

I don’t know why, but I think using the long lens created the weird look.  Its not the prettiest flower, nor is the shot perfectly composed, but it is most definitely unique!
