I found this flower under a bush found it quite difficult as the flower head was bending down. I had to lift it up with one hand and use the camera with the other.Thank you for your great comments on my last up load.

Considering it's a one handed shot, the result is absolutely amazing: such a beautiful arrangement within the frame, beautifully lit, captured in sublime detail and presented against the black b/g that shows it off as if in 3D. Top of the calss work, Linda.

A beautiful Hellebore, Linda, such a shame that they bow their heads to the ground, and don't show off their full beauty. Very well captured and presented. Carol

Gorgeous Hellebore; equally gorgeous image of it! Wonderful details, colours and light all of which really stand out so well against the black bg. I planted several of these at the top of a banking last year as it's probably the only way to get to see the flowers properly, looking up into them.
