Not a National Trust property or RHS garden, just a few shots from my back garden throughout the day....

I love the creativity for number 3 and 6, inspiration is the perfect word. Number 4 looks adorable (is it friend or foe?) while the others are dramatic and moody.

Inspired is certainly an appropriate description here - for me, all of the flower images are top-notch in every respect - composition, colour, lighting, focal point, depth of field, bokeh etc etc. Superb!

Well done on catching the mouse, did he surprise you or the other way around

Thanks for all the comments - the inspiration started with the strong backlighting in the morning, and when the little mouse turned up I dusted off my 400mm and grabbed a few shots before he leapt from the bird table into the hedge, I'd class him as friend unless I find him eating his way through my vegetable patch The water droplets are from a small solar powered fountain I bought a few weeks ago, it just sits in the bird bath a splutters most of the time until there's strong lighting then it spurts majestically

All the shots (apart from the mouse) were taken with the Pentax SMC A 100mm f2.8 Macro, a lens that has become my favourite macro - even shading out the A*200mm f4 Macro

Beautiful, remarkable, definitely inspired and having that indefinable LennyBloke style. A pleasure to look at them - again and again and again.

Please say that getting those water drops from the fountain took hours of concentrated study and effort and it wasn't just a quick grab shot - my wife has a similar fountain and all my attempts to produce water drop pictures have been miserable failures...

Always a lovely example of not just wonderful photography but enjoyable and inspiring photography.

Wonderful set

Excellent lens that often gets forgotten - unfairly, as you demonstrate. 3 and 7 for me.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
