    I haven’t been able to get a shot of a buttercup that shows this level of detail so far, they’re all out in the bright sun (except when it’s been fiercely cloudy and windy), so I get blinding yellow circles.
    I love buttercups! They’re so ubiquitous (I’m in California) and bright and sunny. I also delight in seeing how they relate to garden ranunculus.

    Thank you Daniel for choosing another one of my shots. Flowers this color are often hard to photograph in bright sun and end up washed out. This one was in partial shade of an oak tree. I also used a tripod which I think helped with the sharpness and detail.

    I also am a fan of buttercups. Sagebrush buttercup is usually the first wildflower I see in the spring in Wyoming – in an otherwise drab brown and gray landscape it is spectacular. (R. glaberrimus)
