Macro Monday: Beschorneria yuccoides (Mexican False Red Yucca)


Macro Monday for 9-7-09 http://sundaystills.wordpress.com/

When Ed proposed Macro photos, I have not attempted taking these photos. At the same time, my daughter D suggested I take them. I started experimenting, and wasn't very successful.

The Bird of Paradise was quite satisfactory.

This flower I took looked like a giant aloe. Sorry I don't know it's name. I will post more photos showing the entire plant.

Update: 14 sept: I found the name, it is Beschorneria yuccoides or a false Mexician Yucca.

It is so satisfying solving this.

Good capture.
