White rainlily timelapse

Camera has been one of the greatest inventions of mankind. Over the years, there have been more and more new additions to features cameras bring in. Time lapse, Slo-mo's (slow-motion), and Super-slo-mo's are some of the  brilliant feature additions, especially in mobile phones. I started off this blog, around 8 years back, with a lower-mid range smartphone camera itself. Things have progressed so much. There are a lot of things that we normally miss out in real life, but these tend to be so much better, when observed through, with the help of technology.
Time lapse videos are one such way. It helps capture the nature at its natural pace, and then helps us relish the beauty we would've otherwise missed in real life, just because we do not have too much time to see nature in action at the pace it likes. Things like a seed germinating and becoming a seedling, a flower blooming, do come out absolutely astonishingly when viewed through a time lapse video. I have done time lapses for a lot of my plants, but the longest ones have been under 4 hours, and around 10 hours otherwise. The latest in the series of timelapse videos was a morning time capture of a bunch of rain lilies blooming. 

Rain lilies are absolute beauties of nature. They mysteriously pop-up around rainfall, and thus the name - rain lilies. The bushy plant loves water, but not a soggy kind of soil. It does extremely well in sandy soil which let's water drain fast, and isn't too needy of nutrients, or care. White, yellow and pink ones are some of the most commonly available rain lily varieties available. While all can be grown from their bulbs, just like other lilies, the yellow rain lily possess this unique ability to produce seed pods, that could be used to grow and propagate new plants from seeds.
Leaving you here with the white-rain lily time lapse video, with the hope that you'll enjoy the view. I'll be back with more updates from my garden in the coming week, along with an important announcement, due in a couple of weeks.
