King Solomon’s seal

with 13 comments

Here are some flowers of King Solomon’s seal, Polygonatum biflorum, at Garden in the Woods in Framingham, Massachusetts, on June 12th. The petal length for this species is given as 13–22 mm (half to seven-eighths of an inch), so you can see how close my macro lens let me get. Given the low light and my unwillingness to add the harshness of flash, I was satisfied to get as much in focus as I did at f/3.5.
