Impala Lily

I photographed this Impala Lily (Adenium multiflorum) at Ndumo Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. I tried a number of different compositions, usually focusing on one of the foreground flowers that faced the camera. This image was the last one, where I focused instead on a flower from the side, while throwing the foreground out of focus. I only noticed the delicate strands of spider silk when I looked at the picture on my computer.

Camera used was a Canon EOS 450D Digital SLR with Canon 70-300mm IS zoom lens, mounted on a tripod. Shutter speed was 1/100, aperture F5.6, and ISO was 100.

The Impala Lily is a succulent species that flowers in the southern Africa winter, adding welcome splashes of brilliant pink, white, and crimson colours to the otherwise rather drab winter vegetation.
