Bee Balm

By taggart  
Bee Balm
aka Oswego Tea, Monarda, Bergamot,
Monarda didyma


This, the budding form, caught my attention as it is already showing the unusual structure and colors of this flower. It will soon be bright red and favored by humming birds and all sorts of insects including bees.

Image made in situ, ISO 500 f/11 1/160---the background is a stone wall, much diffused. This is in Pano form--best viewed LARGE!

Oh Jenn! This is just lovely! So sharp one can clearly see even the tiny "hairs" on the leaf edges. Patti

A super shot, Jenn, captured in immaculate detail (as seen in large) and of a plant which is totally strange to me.
