Day 244 of my ‘A Photo A Day’ project.

In the front of our garden these lovely Narcissi appear every spring. They are one of the first spring flowers to grow, apart from the Snowdrops and the Crocuses. I’ve taken a few shots of these over the past week or two, but as usual I hadn’t got a shot I was happy with until today! The weather was so lovely and sunny this afternoon that it provided the perfect opportunity to snap this!

    I’ve just taken a photo very similar to this one!! Lovely shot! I love daffs, might be something to do with being Welsh, but they’re also very pretty! :)

  • Thank you very much! I’d love to see yours too, is it on your profile? I agree, they are wonderful flowers aren’t they! :)

  • I give all credit to my macro lens! I just got nice and close as its actually a small Narcissus flower, using the settings of f7.1 at 1/160 shutterspeed. The sun illuminating the shiny leaves and the hedge behind provided the bokeh for me :)
