Day Lily Time Lapse

I noted the other morning that the day lilies tended to open in the morning and close in the evening.  I wondered if I could capture that opening through a time lapse video.  My first attempt was either too late in the morning or these particular blossoms didn’t behave that way.  However, it was interesting to see a slug moving at warp speed.  Can you see it?

So, the next morning, I tried again, starting a bit earlier with some blossoms that looked promising.

This time I got a couple blossoms opening for the day.

These videos are both best viewed full screen.

    Nothing sluggish about that slug! Thanks again for sharing a sight I would normally miss. Lovely!
