Nice shots of all of them, Jonny. I like the composition of the rose the best. No roses blooming up here quite yet. grin

Thanks Steve!....that rose photo background sure ended up nice I must admit....there was a dark shadowed, water filled ditch about 25' below that rose bush....made for a nice contrasting background!....snapped the image from about 10' away from the rose bush

Very nice series, jonny. The rose is great, but I really like the ladyslipper closeup as well.
