Crocosmia Fireworks

Each year my gardens erupt in a brilliant display of floral fireworks as the Crocosmia bloom. Their small but plentiful red flowers attract hummingbirds and insect pollinators, and are a sure sign that the hot, humid summer weather is here to stay, at least for a while. While I think the flowers are beautiful, the flower buds are equally pretty and interesting. I was out a few evenings ago with my macro setup, and took these photos of some of the buds with their wild reds, greens, and yellows. I hope you enjoy them.
