Buttercup Splash


I spotted this buttercup at the weekend, a bit past its best, soon to be turning to a seedhead. I like the way it’s spread wider than the average buttercup and is a bit uneven rather than being a neat ‘cup’. It looks quite different from the norm. This pleases me. And I’m pleased that this is a no-crop photo – I was experimenting with making sure the composition is right in the camera and not relying on cropping it later. I filled the frame and no crops were required 🙂

  1. Holy moly Suzy. I just splurged on an iPad and as my luck would have it, your beautiful photo is the first thing I brought up on it. Spectacular lady!!
