Looks so elegant standing there on it's own: and so good to see these rare wild flowers and to be able to capture them so well.

You have to be pleased with your images from this shoot Sylvia…even if it has taken 6+ months to realise it Wink Excellent viewing...

Later in the year you'll have to come over and have another go - looking forward to it Smile

A beautiful and rare flower which you have photographed so expertly, you've isolated it perfectly from the background
