    This is a lovely shot ,Lynne. These are not the easiest flowers to shoot. You have managed the depth of field very well and you chose the perfect light too.

  • Love your delightful and thoughtful comments, thank you so much! Yes, these are a bit difficult to shoot…they only open when there’s a certain amount of sunlight. These were mostly shaded and the day was a bit windy!
