4/365 Dried hyacinth blooms

Traditionally, I photograph flowers when they're at their prime, or perhaps when they're just getting ready to bloom.

This grape hyacinth has passed its peak, but I actually like that aspect of this photo. I like the healthy green leaves that seem to be sheltering the dried blossom. The dried petals add a different texture than you normally see on a gorgeous flower.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens and 430EX Speedlite, 1/125s, f/2.8 at ISO 500
