Tunnel Vision Daffodil



Tunnel Vision Daffodil

In an effort to take some slightly different Daffodil pictures this is what I came up with. The first shot is straight down the throat of a large Trumpet type of Daff. I never realized that dirt get inside there and in hindsight I probably would have cleaned out the trumpet before shooting.

This next shot was kind of an off the cuff composition and it came about since I didn’t really feel like kneeling down on the wet ground. It did ending up showing a good view of the stigma, anthers and filaments that make up the flower. I like the green shading in the very center.

Happy Easter to everyone celebrating the holiday today. The weather is going to be superb here and that is always nice. I am looking forward to seeing all the Easter and spring flowers at Today’s Flowers .

Beautiful macro shots, I prefer the second one, out of the tunnel.
Happy Easter to you and yours!

I love taking macro shots like this. And the "dirt" in the top shot is rather cool. I'm always seeing stuff in PhotoShop that I didn't know was there when I was taking the photo. All part of the process...

How 'bout we go there? These are stunning. Daffs are my favorites, so these make my night.
