Art of the Day: Into the Yucca

Most of the bee shots on this site will focus on the bee – and really pay attention to the eye. In this case, though, the bee seems almost incidental. This one took – actually a false yucca or hummingbird yucca – five years to bloom, but wow…when it did, it was magnificent. Started sometime late May, I think, and went through the first few soft frosts…five or six ten-foot blooms stalks just going and going and going. When you look at the pic, notice that there are a few flowers open, a couple past their prime, and lots and lots of buds of various sizes. It’s really a magnificent plant. Look for a hummingbird on it soon as “art of the day”. They sure love this plant, too.

Also, this is obviously a thin vertical, too. I really need to develop my eye to shoot those. It’s often lots easier to find room on the wall for a long, thin, tall one than it is a square or traditional rectangle.

I’ve got this one in the gallery 20 x 48 on 1/8″acrylic in a white, custom frame for $445. It looks really good. And would make a good breaker box cover, too.
