Brilliant!

I find it very difficult to take focussed shots of twigs. How lovely to see this flower! I've been noticing fragile signs of spring too.

Thanks, good idea.

My husband belongs to a camera club but they seem to focus (!) on frequent competitions and the standard is way above me. Perhaps I'll look for a beginners group locally.
