Have you tried to express that red flower petals. It is at the base of a drop of sweet nectar, which can be felt in the mouth.

@Jypyä Pop: Oh yeah, I have tasted the nectar many times! It's wonderful.

Good delicate colouring, still wondering if angling the camera up towards the sky and using the little fill flash might give you a less obtrusive background?

@Curly: Thank you.
I see the two of us do see things very differently (actually I have noticed it many times before too), in my opinion the best part of this shot is the background. :) And yes, I knew if someone had something to say about the background it would be you. :D But yeah, if we ever see the sun again while these still flower, I can go and take it again from lower and with the fill flash and show you how it looks done that way.

I love the light, the focus and the background. You have captured the feel of this clover beautifully.

@Ruthiebear: Thank you very much!

As your an expert on clover, does white clover taste as good as the red ?. ;>))

20 Jun 2013 6:12pm

@Jeff: I think the nectar in the red ones is a little bit sweeter than in white... :)

There's something special about photography. Most people wouldn't even notice the beauty. You did

The sun we had for a while made life a little easier, so the pics turned out better too. :)
