8/365 Pink hyacinth

Hyacinths, though they're always attractive, tend to be one of the less compelling photo subjects to me.

I'm not sure exactly why, though I think it has to do with the fact that they don't have one singular bloom to focus on, and their blossoms are stacked vertically. It presents a challenge -- but that's the name of the game.

I'm pleased with how this attempt turned out. I had to get as close to the ground as I could in order to get a straight-on or even upward angle rather than the easy bird's eye view.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/2.8 at ISO 100
