    Yes, sometimes taking a picture (or shooting a video) can become a bit of a challenge... However once the image captured and preserved correctly - The reward is really endless! So tanks for sharing it with us all! :D

    Those photos are lovely. I too sometimes take pictures like that and to make it easier on the getting up part, use a mirror.

    HaHaHa Donna, Thanks for going the extra mile for these great shots! These blooms are beauties!
    Maybe some other ambitious photographers on the Stew will get down to get some good shots.
