A few photos

flowers, photography, Plants

My current faves in the garden are the little patch of snakes head fritillary and the hellebores at the front of the back border, still going strong.  I took my DSLR and 50mm lens out in the evening sunshine tonight and managed to get a few shots of these which I’m really pleased with.


I think I’ve finally figured out how to get the best from this prime lens!  For photography fans – I stopped it down to f1.8 for this effect – the flower pops right out.


But this shot is my photo of the day…


…and it’s my current favourite spring flower in the garden – a delicate little hybrid of the purple fritillary and one of the few whites which are also there.  It looks like it’s made of tissue.
