Pic(k) of the Week: In the limelight

In the limelight

Morning sun created a flash-without-a-flash effect (with a little assist from post-production).

A limelight hydrangea blossoms in a garden, in Decatur, Georgia, USA. 29 May 2022.
Hydrangea paniculata — the panicled hydrangea or limelight hydrangea— is a species of flowering plant in the family Hydrangeaceae, native to China, Korea, Japan, and Russia. It is a deciduous shrub or small tree, 1–5 m (3.3–16.4 ft) tall by 2.5 m (8 ft) broad, growing in sparse forests or thickets in valleys or on mountain slopes. In late summer it bears large conical panicles of creamy white fertile flowers, together with pinkish white sterile florets. Florets may open pale green, grading to white with age, thus creating a pleasing 'two-tone' effect.
