Down on Your Knees: GGW Picture This Photo Contest


Here's my entry in the August Picture This Photo Contest. This month's theme: "Down on Your Knees."

Iris reticulata

I get down on my knees -- and my belly -- in the mud in the early spring, because that's where all the action is here. But here are others that were under consideration:

Bee buzzing Iris reticulata. This was actually my top choice at first. I'm partial to pollinators, and this floating bee provided a focus. If the light had been the same as my entry, this one would be at the top of the page.

I love the perspective and the shallow depth of field on the first eranthis shot. makes me feel like a toad hopping through your garden.

Loved ‘em in March and love ‘em now! I found out too late to send a picture in but really enjoyed seeing all the entries. Definitely think I need some eranthis!

All these photos are so beautiful. My favourite is the dewy crocus.
