Photo: Magnolia Blossom (Open)

Magnolia Blossom (Open), originally uploaded by dewelch.

Another photo from our little neighborhood walk yesterday.

This huge Magnolia Grandiflora bloom was in the shade, but looked wonderful. Used a little fill flash to add some more light. Note the little fly in the upper-left. Didn’t notice him/her when I took the shot.

On a camera note, I can zoom in quite far on the fly in the original photo. I think someone more insect knowledgeable than me could even identify it.

The San Fernando Valley is full of these Magnolia trees planted along the streets. Only a few blocks away is Magnolia Boulevard which runs across the entire valley. They put on quite a show every year.

    Isn’t it the neatest thing when you can be walking, not particularly looking for anything, and then you come across something as a blooming magnolia flower. Nice!
