My wife, Pam, requested photographs of her hosta taken in the first sun of a summer day. Just after the sun broke the clouds this morning I had the Manfrotto tripod set up, the Canon mounted with my new EF 50 mm 1:1.2 L, and this is the result.
Overview of the hosta and blooms. These are also called Plaintain Lilies. Over the years, Pam has propagated three plants by splitting them and replanting. Last year we invested in a fence to prevent the deer from browsing them to the ground.
