Crocus day by Cherrill

Crocus day

In UK today it seems to have been the right conditions for the crocuses to open. Two of my 365 friends have posted crocus pictures today......so here's another!
Sometimes nature doesn't need any processing, this is just as taken, except for a crop and slight sharpen. Not bad for a P&S! :-)
Try viewing large :-)

Beautiful!! Love the little nectary (?) drops. Funnily enough I have been self-flagellating about procession my crocus shot - it seemed like a crime but I needed to blur the man bit & got carried away!!

Really crisp for a p & s. Beautiful colours

Beautiful colours, I must go out looking for some crocuses

Wonderful colors, nice focus and composition. I have to break out the new macro rig and play with some of the flowers in my yard. Great results from your PS, they have more DOF because of the small sensor and high pixel density.
