Ash said...

I'm in awed with these gorgeous shots! Very beautiful indeed. Good work Karen. I thought I saw you in the crystal clear raindrop on the canna leaf :)
Daisies are such special flower, don't you think? Simple yet lovely!

Pieces of Sunshine said...

You DID see me Ash, hunched over trying to take a photo while the breeze kept blowing....very observant!
The raindrop shot was taken with my Lumix + Raynox. The first, third (raindrops), fifth and last were all taken with my Lumix, the others with my Canon DSLR. I think all were taken using the Raynox attachment except the fifth.
