    Our planned trip out today had to be cancelled so I sat in the garden instead. I spotted these which seemed worthy of a photo.
    I used the Nikkor 50-f1.8. First two were in the shade of the house the third in full sun. I have tinkered using photoshop and cropped but still can't get them as sharp as some contributors.
    All critique welcome.

    Great shot Ron. I must try the water droplets, they certainly add to the photo.

    Best regards
