I've been photographing these today but didn't get anything nearly as good as this. Well done. It's the subtle rim light that gives it the edge (pardon the pun).

Rib tickling Mike Wink

Actually despite the EC from Pete, and I do agree about the rimlighting, I think there is actually a slightly stronger composition with a small crop from the bottom and fractionally from the right. However, it does work as is Grin

A big thank you for dropping in to view, vote and comment and for the EC Pete Smile

Your good wishes are also very much appreciated Smile

I know what you mean about photographing these Pete...going to try one in full bloom if I can get down that low Wink

Cheryl, I can see where you're coming from...I tried several subtle crops of this frame which isn't far off full...think I'll stick with this one for the moment Wink

Best,
Mike

Hi Fran,

You won't be disappointed with the lightweight set-up and quality this system gives you. Sylvia seems very pleased with her new camera and lens...and the 100-300mm is out soon too Smile
