Dear Daphne

Things are progressing very well these days, though it still gets cool at night.  Many awakening plants appear eager to take advantage of the warming changes that have finally come to pass.  About a week ago our Daphne flowering shrub (Daphne odora) burst into bloom, and its fragrance in the late afternoon is a delight to experience.

    The pink is absolutely stunning. I really admire too your critical focusing and how you used depth of field in this image.

      I have three helpers to thank for the focusing–a really good tripod, a wireless remote release, and the patience to wait for the breeze to stop (and making multiple shots in the process and picking out the sharpest one afterward). Thanks for the kind words, Mike!
