These are all visually stunning!
Standouts for me are #6 on all merits and especially composition, #5 for the nice pastel softness and #1 for the layering leading up to a perfect dragon👍🏼
Each is a tiny treasure from your garden, a safe haven of enjoyment!

Awesome set
Karl😎


Thanks so very much Karl. I do like going through the garden and finding the things that await.

Wonderful and very enjoyable images from your garden, Birdie! The entire set is masterfully captured and presented but #2,3, 5 and 6 are extra sweet.

Birdie,

A superb set. To put it another way, typical of your work.

No 6 does stand out. However, I think it has more to offer if you abandon the square format and lose that lower, partial flower.

Harold


Thanks Harold. I will play with the crop.

Excellent pictures. I imagine they are natural light?
It might be useful to try a LED light to augment it. I have been experimenting with one It has a variable output and colour temp adjustment. Not very bright for high shutter speeds or apertures, but as a fill ,it does help. It does depend on what lenses you use and how close you get.
Flash is good, but it spoils 'soft tones'

Also you have some wonderful and cooperative subjects in your garden.
Contemplative photography, the best kind.


Mike, thank you for the find comments. Yes, these are natural light. I do have a led light that works just as you have described. I need to remember to give it a try. On these it was a combo of 90mm macro, 100-400 and 200-600.

Wonderful set.

#6 stands out for me. The red flower/green background and the excellent straight-on focus of the dragonfly make it an excellent composition.

PS - I need to work on my garden in hopes of attracting more critters.


Much appreciated Elvis. Any work you put into the garden is worth the joy received for the efforts.

So beautiful Birdie ! #6 is my favorite and don't change a thing The plant in the lower right corner seeming to hold up the stem of the other flower really grounds that image and works so well. But you already know that

A delight to view Roberta. Is this your garden or one you visit

Morris


Thank you Morris. This is our garden. My hubby has turned the backyard in several different areas with different plants and flowers for me and the critters. It is a lot of work , but we enjoy it.

I will add some pictures of the garden, which is always a work in progress.
