Patriot Hosta flower

Shot for The Sunday Challenge (camera no more than a few inches off the ground).

I have never particularly liked the stalks of flowers that hosta plants produce. When viewed from above, they droop downwards. However, when viewed from below, I find that they are quite attractive.

Wonderful shot. Learned long ago that flower photos taken at a lower pov are usually better than those shot from above.

I know what you mean about hosta flowers. They have never been a focal point of that plant for me either, but they are just gorgeous this way Esther. I didn't even recognize them. :)
