The sun was just coming up. I photographed this day lily in our garden in the freshness of the morning. You can see the drops of morning dew fresh on the flower.

The kids were eating breakfast, and could see me out the window in the breakfast nook manipulating my camera, McClamp stick, and tripod. (More on the McClamp, the Wimberly Plamp, how to use them, and how they compare in a future post.)

The kids thought it was lots of fun to wave and blow kisses at me.

True luxury: to photograph flowers at home with my family nearby and a hot mug of coffee with steamed foam.

Here are some more photos of the lily:
