Lilies and Rudbeckia

I like shooting photos so the object in the front is clear and the background has a blur (or bokeh). Here are orange lilies in front of yellow rudbeckia.

The rudbeckia are shown in front of the day lilies. I have rudbeckia (commonly Black-Eyed Susans) all over my yard.

They are beautiful Leora!
I didn't know the second flower's name, but now I know. :)

I like the blurred effect too. Unfortunately it is something I can't achieve with the camera on the phone. I need the real thing for that but in some places the real thing is a bit conspicuous.

I have a few rudbeckia too. They like to spread. :) I also have a few daylilies. LOL

Carletta says

Love the depth of field in both of these Leora!
I was just telling my Hubs today that he must have cut and dug out my Rudbeckia last fall without realizing it. As of now he is banned from the garden beds. :)

Nice reversal, showing the lilies clearly first then the black-eyed susans. Again, another fine watercolor subject...

The lilies and rudbeckia are so beautiful. I love the big splash of color they make.
