Please let me apologize, I started catching up and then I got rally drowned in work and also had to tend to Chris who was in hospital. He's back home and I managed to get a few shots yesterday, the very first orchids are out on the Plateau d'argentine.
So this is specially for Sylvia Smile

I must have been a sight on all for on the ground with my 'wobbly' lens.

A very special belated thank you to Alex Appleby!

I can hardly wait for my wife's flowers to start coming in. But at least the spring is finally arriving. Congratulations on a beautiful picture!

The fast shutter speed to counteract your 'wobbly' lens then? Dof and colour looks very good, Annette, you can get up now Grin

Beautifully captured Annette, glad to hear Chris is out of hospital, I know how you feel Rob has been in hospital 12 days with another 7 to go in rehab...

My best wishes to you both, esp. Chris: hope he is well on the mend, Annette.
And what a delightful bloom to come across, and so beautifully captured.
