Good morning....
Apologies to those whose images I missed yesterday, will endeavour to catch up today....GE duties are very time consuming
We have these minute flowers growing in our garden, ( the size of a pinkie nail) no idea what they are called but was attracted to them....have quite a few images and cannot make up my mind which i prefer....
Have a nice day...Grin

V5 is lovely with the colour more prominent in main flower, but they others all have a charm
of their own.

Hi colleen these type of shots I really like it 's out of focus
or bokea back ground that lets the main image stand out
also a narrow depth of field produced in some shot's
