Birmingham Botanical Gardens Cardinal Flower in Bloom

Cardinal Flower in Bloom Sticking with the Spring feeling outside today, the Image of the Day is a Cardinal Flower, taken in Birmingham Alabama a few years ago.  Birmingham has a very nice botanical gardens and it is always changing.  I would go there to take photographs while I was attending UAB and there was always something new to shoot.  They had at the time some wonderful water lilies that produce a very beautiful bloom and makes for a nice clean background.  This image here was taken a little off the beaten path with a macro lens.

If you ever get a chance to spend some time in Birmingham and are looking for a nice quiet place to shoot, try the botanical gardens right next to the zoo.  I hear even in the winter time there are nice areas that produce some wonderful photographs.
