Well my wonderful father has filled me in on how to take a good shot with your digital camera of a flower close-up. He said to try take the photo on more of an angle. I took a mess of photos around the yard trying things out this afternoon. There are some more crocuses coming up in my back flower bed, and I tried approaching them on an angle with my Kodak Easyshare Z740 and it worked!

I can’t believe my icicle pansies survived the winter and are full of blooms again! I mean there is still some snow in the shade across the street! I’m the first one in the neighbourhood to have flowers!
