Photos of bees and their preferred flowers taken on Mon 01.05.15 at The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens with my Nikon D800 and a Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens. Yes, the camellias are blooming right now.
Sun 10.26.14 – While organizing some of my Flickr images yesterday, I found this photo that I had taken of a camellia floating in the north lawn fountain at The Huntington from last March. I double checked to see what I posted here on this blog on that same day. I was surprised, as I now prefer the above image of the camellia to the azalea that I posted.
Thus, here is the “The Floating Camellia” taken on March 23, 2014 at the Huntington Library and Gardens with a Nikon D800 and a Nikon 50mm f1.4G lens.
Sun 11.03.13 – Last weekend when I went for a photo walk to the Huntington Library and Gardens, the camellia trees adjacent to the North Lawn were not flowering and only had small buds, usually to bloom in January or February.
Today, eight days later, one rain storm later, and a few hot days later, about 5 of the camellia trees had bloomed and dropped faded flowers into the leaf litter.
