Nicely done Robert. Very nice composition #1449908

Very, very nice,
Thanks for your advise, I am experimenting with Helicon.
My first attempt was on a flower with drops on it. The light was changing and I had some problems.
I see you are in total control of every shot.
I must do that.

Fantastic this one and the trio also
