It's been all about the colour for me this month, what with the mild weather and lovely sunshine bringing the flowers out in such profusion.
|Pleased that I managed to get the light just right here so that the|
edges of the petals just seem to dissolve away
|Giant poppies are amongst my favourite of all flowers. The anther|
here look like a fluffy feather boa to me
|My favourite picture of the month, all that beautiful colour|
|Those experienced phorographers may look askance at this as the|
light exposure is a tad too bright but actually this is what I wanted
so the centre of the flower almost appears to be glowing
|A standard sized poppy, magnified by the power of macro|
|Is it just me or does this style and stigma combo look a tad on|
the raunchy side?
|The best photo of a ladybird I have ever taken|
|Looking upwards through a tree, trying to capture all the diffrent|
textures of the various lichens and so on clustering on the branches
|On the morning this was taken there had been heavy rain the night|
before and I wanted to get the contrast of the sleak water droplets
and the texture of the rose petal
|Another rose - this one a much smaller variety, petal after petal|
|An iris, looking like something you would find in a tropical fish tank|
|Playing with light and shadow on a rose. Yes, the big shadow in the |
bottom right hand corner is me. Wish I had noticed this before taking
the picture and moved to get rid of it.
|For this one, I wanted to capture as many flower heads as possible|
while having the centre of one on display in the foreground.
|A pansy that looks like it is sticking it's tongue out :)|
