V1 my favourite tonight Theresa, it has such lovely detail and the presentation is top class. V2 looks a little on the wild side - was it windy? Anyway I like them both.SmileSmile

Two super close ups here Theresa.
And if you use a pancake lens with a bit of jam on it,
I am sure the bugs will face your camera then !!

Yes it was, Joan! I had to take these on shutter priority at 1/2500!

Both lovely captures Theresa. I like both but v2 is very special. Really like the focus in the center and the softness towards the edges. Nice bokeh in both.

I could not help you with bugs. My cat constantly turns his back on me when I'm trying to get a photo Sad

I particularly like V 1 with the bud set against the back of the open bloom.......and such very pretty delicate colouring: I'd feel pleased if I got a bug in any of my floral shots no matter which way it was facingWinkWink

Both are extremely good, Theresa, but v1 has to take the top prize today, such a beautifully delicate composition that should really be on a greetings card of some sort.

Two lovely images, beautifully captured and presented, for me it has to be V1 by a short head Smile

Both these stunning images are worthy of an upload by themselves. I love V2 but it is rather outshone by the brilliance and beauty of V1. It's a shame as V2 would be a real stunner as a separate upload. Great work, very well done!!

Two excellent captures, Theresa - agree with Carol, V2 would be a winner for me in it's own right, but love V1 and the presentation Smile
