Sorrel

By chase
From my garden.
This little flower is also known as Oxalis or Shamrock.It rolls it's petals up in the evening & unfurls them in the sunshine.There are about 500 species of this plant,many of which are considered weeds & can be quite invasive.

F22 manual mode
1.3 secs.with tripod
ISO 100
Spot metering
Raw converted in C1LE,curves adjusted & border added.

Taken against my light box plus daylight from the window.
Larger is a bonus if you can.

Tankyou for looking.
Janet
