Tiger Lilies
In reply to WhyNot, 9 months ago

From the archives again, E-30 and 35mm macro with EC-14.  Best enlarged, and comments/criticism appreciated.  Sadly, these are pretty much just a memory now.  Had a bad Lily beetle infestation three or four years ago.  Since then, although not quite killed off, the plants never really make it to maturity before being eaten.  They decimated the Tiger Lilies and Asiatic Lilies, but at least they seem to have no taste for Day Lilies.  I guess they're about impossible to get rid of without spraying, and I won't do that because of all the other insects/bees, birds, etc.  Hopefully the little buggers will move on at some point.
