Ran one leg and ground mud into the knee, all for these little beauties.

In large groups:

Or small ones:
11668

Already laden with pollen:
11666

Though this one needs some remedial lessons in how to bloom...
11667

But spring may yet get here (even though it hailed yesterday, and it was so windy today we thought we might get a tour of the country from the comfort of our house!)

Lovely set, but especially liking that third one. Love the dof used.

I like that 2nd shot ... and the 3rd as well.

Where's the shot of the pantyhose??? ;)

Me too - I was so hoping to see more panty hose shots lol.

I like the use of selective focus in these shots and shot 3 is my fave of the set

The last one is great, persistence of nature and all that :)

Beautiful set. It was worth a pair of pantyhose.

Wonderful set. #3 is my favourite here too but I wish you had had a macro lens and got a really good shot of the flower poking through that leaf....maybe a crop job on the shot you have? That looks amazing to me.

Thank you, everyone. They were indeed worth a pair of pantyhose, and scrubbing my knees once I got back to the office. As for the closeup, Iggy, either of these grab you?

And one more for Wicked Dark, to get her through until hers are blooming. :clap:

Cool stuff! I can not believe how orange their centers are.

That's very cool with the bud sticking through the dead leaf!

Thanks, JAS; yes, the centers are very orange. Especially noticeable when you're shooting down at them.

Glad you like the closer crop, MA. And your pantyhose shots are in another thread. ;)

Yes! They both do! Very cool!

I was thinking of renting a macro lens over the 'net and trying these again. (Several internet businesses around) It hailed this evening on the way home from grocery shopping. Maybe I'll wait a couple more weeks, and keep cropping down instead.
