Back to the old days, so long ago I question have I got this right... pick a buttercup, hold it under their chin to see if they like butter? ..... even writing it down dosn't convince me, got to be right hasn't it........ anyway cheers to all and enjoy the coming W/E..........

That is the game we played as children, too.
V5 is my favorite this morning....buttercups are hard to photograph well, and this one really is special.

Lovely presentation I can only say the same as Joline these flowers are so hard to capture well but you have managed six cracking shots. It never stops to amaze me how these delicate little flowers survive in all our elements.SmileSmileSmile
