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.
