Love To Shoot Daffodils

One of my favorite flowers is the daffodil. And I love to photograph them.  These poped up in the neighbor's yard.  I have been seeing them for the last two days and decided to grab a shot or two today.
There are three blooms growing up together. Two are close together, one is facing the opposite way and is almost on the ground. Had to do the two together against the sky, got the top image. Did one with the 300 that compressed the two, and had a really soft, dreamy look to it, but liked this one better.

The last two are the one close to the ground. The middle iamge was with the 28mm lens, no fill flash. I like the  boldness that the high contrast gives it, and the way the grass is lighted by the sun.

The bottom is with the 10mm, and I used some fill flash on it. There is no opacity to the petals, and i bit of shadow cast by the overhead flash. The flower and grass are evenly lit in this one. I like the clouds and sun in this picture, the bottom two match the feel of the top one.

 For oft when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude,
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the Daffodils.
 From a poem by a poem by William Wordsworth

Love the daffodil shots - the sky and clouds look pretty awesome because I think we're not used to seeing ant's eye view. Good work!
