My mom bought an amarylis shortly before Christmas and planted it a few weeks ago.  The  first stalk is out and has five blooms on it; a second stalk is in the process of growing, and it too will probably have about five blooms.

I took these photos this morning using natural light coming in the back window (the sun wasn't around to that side of the house yet, and won't be until afternoon) with a black cloth draped over a chair.  I used the macro setting on my Pentax K200D camera, and made a few adjustments using Photoshop Elements 7.
