Past their prime but still beautiful

For the past month Eddie has been coming home with some fresh tulips probably in the hopes of hurrying spring along.   And I have been photographing each new batch when they are in full bloom and at their most beautiful.  Yesterday I noticed that last week's bouquet was starting to shrivel and I was thinking how they were beautiful at this stage as well and were begging to be photographed before they are gone.  

 These were all shot with my Fuji XT1 and 55-200 handheld.  Processed in LR with FUJI Camera Velvi Vivid.  I'm so impressed with the OIS capacity of this lens:  200 mm 1/40th and 1/60th second.
