Hello dear friends and visitors!
After so long absence I am here again to share a simple pic taken in my last trip to New Orleans.
Since my first trip to New Orleans I really wanted to photograph a beautiful magnolia blossom.This time I got some shots of this beautiful flower.It is very big and has un strong scent.The tree of Magnolia is also very big.This pic was taken from a second floor of a house in a platation.
Hope you like!
Big hug from,

Magnolia is a large genus of about 210 flowering plant species in the subfamily Magnolioideae of the family Magnoliaceae. It is named after French botanist Pierre Magnol.
Magnolia is an ancient genus. Having evolved before bees appeared, the flowers developed to encourage pollination by beetles. To avoid damage from pollinating beetles, the carpels of Magnolia flowers are extremely tough. Fossilised specimens of Magnolia acuminata have been found dating to 20 million years ago, and of plants identifiably belonging to the Magnoliaceae dating to 95 million years ago. Another primitive aspect of Magnolias is their lack of distinct sepals or petals: Magnolias possess undifferentiated flower parts for which the term "tepals" was coined.
The natural range of Magnolia species is a disjunct distribution, with a main centre in east and southeast Asia and a secondary centre in eastern North America, Central America, the West Indies, and some species in South America.

Olà Ana!
Welcome back! A wonderful image my dear friend.
The play of lights and shadows on the Magnolia is marvellous. Nice details of the heart of the flower. Very good sharpness and excellent DOF. Well composed.

Magnolia is a wonderful flower and very fragrant. I love it. Also in Italia we can find Magnolia but it has a different heart.
