This lacecap hydrangea looks very different now than back in early October

"Chantilly Lace" (Hydrangea serrata 'Woodlander') Nikon D300, 105mm F/2.8G Macro, F/5, 1/160s, -1.7EV, ISO 1000, Built-in iTTL Fill Flash, -0.7EV

Photographed in my camera’s monotone color mode and then enhanced a bit using Silver Efex Pro’s High Contrast Red Filter, this little bloom is certainly living up to her lacy description!


  1. I think this is even prettier now than the October version. Looks very delicate.

    • Yeah, that’s what drew me to that one. It is stuff like this that really makes me love Mother Nature. She may be sending us some brutal weather lately, but then she’ll soften the blow by making me see beauty in things like this. Thanks Michaela! 🙂

  2. Hmmm, my hydrangeas have never gotten all skeletal like that. I like it!

    • Thanks Lynn! I’ve never noticed this phenomenon on the mophead varieties and only just noticed it on the lacecaps. With this weather, I’ve been reduced to looking at everything!

  3. I must say this is one sexy leaf. It looks like some romantic piece of lacy garmet…so elegant and beautiful.

    • Thanks Amber! It’s actually a single flower blossom, not a leaf. Neat, huh?
