Lovely! Is this a wildflower?
Yes. We have a profusion of them in a local meadow and I have a few in wild areas in my garden. A clump like that one is not common. Very nice shots from you.

'Flora' is definitely not my usual fare, so I'm in a learning phase, but lockdown is limiting the shooting choices at the moment, and I did have some planned work using this technique later in the year, so decided to get a little practice in today.

Two high(ish) key photos of garden flowers here in spring-time in Yorkshire - an aquilegia and a corn flower - shot using a background flash to produce the white background.

Very much a practice - so anyone with some experience of this technique, please feel free to share any tips.

Cheers
