Yesterday, as I found this gorse bush in full flower, I felt cheered up – it’s a plant I love for its vivid colour. But a photo seemed just very ‘ordinary’ at first. Then I remembered something I often tell other people; lighting is everything. I moved round, and shot almost into the sun, so that some of the colour is from transmitted light (not just reflected light) and the background is much darker. I found the high contrast suited the subject.It's kind to share!
I found these flowers while out on a short walk yesterday (Saturday.) I’m not even sure what they are, but what struck me was the way this picture is symbolic of the turn of the seasons; there are still a few flowers around, but there are seed heads and fruits, too. Here, they sit side by side, just for now.It's kind to share!
I was just taking a breather yesterday afternoon (11 June) and having a go at a spot of macro flower photography (as one does) when this little insect came by and dropped in of a few moments. I’d be most grateful for help in identifying both the flower and the insect!It's kind to share!
