Mike- I can see why you had to. Its so beautiful to begin with, and then the look and idea of one standing out by itself is always a special look. The full frame of the flowers is awesome and the lighting and clarity are exceptional. The colors are vivid and rich and the yellow of the daffodil really stands out from the blue. What a find you came across and you captured it to perfection.
Lovely work my friend.
Have a great day, enjoy, take care. #7468129

When I saw this poor little daffodil surrounded by bluebells I just knew I had to capture it.
