white amaryllis diptich (Hippeastrum)

The white Hippeastrum, commonly known as Amaryllis, that has been sitting on my dining room table has been blooming for a couple of weeks. I have finally taken a few minutes to photograph it, to try to capture the delicate beauty.  Amaryllis means “to sparkle”  in Greek, the flowering bulb has become almost as popular as the poinsettia to decorate our home. Photographed in front of the kitchen window, using a macro lens I was able to get a nice clean background, and the backlight helps to bring out the lines and texture.
