every year I go for a week as a nature guide to the Snake's Head Fritillary fields. Of course, I also take pictures, actually a lot!

Excellent series, #1 and 4 for me. #3 may benefit from a slight crop off the top, unless your leaving room for text?

Very nice set indeed.    Maybe 7,8 could be a bit brighter and 9 enchanced to increase the silhouette?

The bokeh in all of these is very eye catching. It's hard to choose a favourite but I like #1 with the extra bokeh from the shining dewdrops.

Would you care to share which lens/camera you used here?

@mikey2000, I took your advice and made ​​them a little lighter!

All photos taken with the A77 and Minolta 100mm macro or the Tamron 180mm macro

Tamron 180 - I wish you hadn't said that!   I have a lingering urge to buy a 180mm macro. These pictures aren't helping me to wait until I've saved up enough!

I like the "painted" looking background in #4. That is a very nice capture.

I like the ethereal nature added by the out of focus grasses

Hi Ton,

You are a very lucky man to have this delicate show available for you every year - this series is a joy to look through.

I think you have combined the subjects and use of diffuse OOF areas very well, whilst the backgrounds all work exceptionally well with the subject, acting as a canvass against which the flower can really shine. I also like the choices you made with showing us the more unusual viewpoints for these as well - I thought #'s 6 and 8 particularly fine examples of something out of the ordinary with this particular plant.

Knowing how small these are getting the low down shots meant you must have been lying on your stomach most of the morning - hope you dried uot quickly!

Thanks for sharing this series; a great introduction to Spring.

Best regards, Neil.
My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

These are truly wonderful. May favorite is #4, but #8 is special as well.
