Lucky you to have these beauties in your yard Shane.
You captured a real nice blast of color here.
One observation I have is to try and avoid shooting them when they are in direct sunlight as it appears to me possible in the first two. The brightness of the sun makes it very difficult to capture the detail as you can see from the yellow stamens in # 1. I find that they are not the easiest flower to photograph and one always has to choose between focusing on the central stamen and its supporting cast. I like the last one best for the clarity of the detail and if you have Noise reduction software I would apply it to the background in this shot, or if not just use the blur tool a bit on the bg.
Hope this helps,
