Here is a shot just out of the camera.
Camera: Canon EOS Rebel XT

Not a spectacular shot just soft and pretty. I like the muted lavender and yellow hues.

Delicately exquisite photo! thanks for sharing it with us.

I enjoy seeing pictures of other peoples flowers especially since our flowerbeds remain empty this year.

The pretty bloom and soft colors remind me of Victorian wallpaper in an old home. I can almost hear the bees buzzing!

It's a very pretty shot! Your photos would make lovely notecards!

Oh, that is such a lovely colored hydrangea. I would love to be in a zone where I could have some of those kinds.

I love hydrangeas too but ours won't be in bloom for some time as our weather hasn't been all that great this year :o)

I love it. I have one hydrangea plant in my front yard that my dad gave me when I first moved in. It's not the prettiest shade but it's the most beautiful plant I have.

Beautiful! What type of hydranga is that? It has somewhat of a ruffled edge to it's blossoms.

I love mixed colors on the same flower! Sorry it has taken me so long to come visit. Lots of school work for the end of the year. 8 more days with students! I am going to miss my 5th graders. They are a great group of kids.

With regards to your shot - I like especially how you framed it. It's funny - everytime I take pictures of flowers now - I think of where I am going to put the words that I love to add at intelligent expressions. This would be a perfect shot for a scripture or a quote - and then make a notecard out of it.

I went on a wine tour yesterday (never in my life have I ever done that - I never have even drunk wine) I learned so much, but saw such great flowers and picture opportunities. But every time I snapped I was trying to frame it for future use. I guess I am finally growing as a photographer, as I used to just take the picture and hope it turned out. Now I am beginning to think of how I will use it.
The gift shops had matted photo's for sale - $25 - 40 for a photo in a mat - and your photo's and mine - were ten times the quality of the shots they were offering.

Something to think about for sure!

Thanks so much for your faithful participation in Favorite Photo Friday. I love to see your work!
