Butterflyweed in a Minute

I photographed this flower cluster on a walk from my house in bright morning sunlight using a Canon G9. In macro mode, the lens was zoomed to full telephoto to not only narrow the field of view of the background but also by using a small aperture to blur the background. I intentionally moved between the flower and the sun to cast a shadow on the flower; the light reflecting off the light sand of the road combined with the bright overhead sky provided interesting lighting. Including the plant's green leaves adds interest to the the orange flower cluster. Yepper ... it took less than a minute to take several photos. This is my favorite of a Butterflyweed.
