I seem to spot flowers as they first come out, then rush to catch what I think is a rare specimen, only to find that that particular one was just an early arrival of what soon is spread throughout the landscape. Here is a perfect example. The inside of this creeping buttercup is really shiny, something you might not be aware of, looking at it with the naked eye. But when the light catches it, it suddenly over exposes with those shiny bits and you have to start again, changing the settings of the camera to try to catch the detail that’s lost in the brilliance. So here it is with as much detail as I could manage. A solo advance party before the influx which now floods the ditches and verges. Put it under your chin and see how it glows yellow, from that shiny reflective surface. Enjoy the day, friends and for those in Nova Scotia, I hope you have managed to keep cool in the heat we have had in the past few days. A safe and cool hug to all. A Flower a Day #271 (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers I post, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )
