Let it Be?

2015_Garden-2

 

I took my camera on a stroll through my garden on Sunday with my 60mm (120mm equivalent) macro lens attached. I came across this little garden pest growing amongst the rocks near my clothesline. As I usually do, I got down low and spent some time shooting this lovely little flower. It’s growing quite wildly and I will probably remove it from the shortly. Is that harsh?

 

I shall add these to Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic. I really prefer to keep the ISO low, set here at 200. The other settings are available in the captions of the images. It was handheld and at an awkward angle, so they aren’t quite as sharp as I’d like.

  2. I agree with Lucile; I’d let it be — just as a reward for being pretty. If you want to pull it, do so after it’s finished blooming.

      Yes, I should point out that the flowers are less than an inch in size, closer to half an inch!!
      Thank you so much. You have a great day too!
