April - The best yellow flower

Postby rodsmith » Sun Apr 03, 2016 8:07 am

Yellow flowers are my favourites so I thought I would indulge myself by setting a subject that I will enjoy judging. The photos can be of any yellow flower or flowers on a cactus or other succulent and I will be judging on subject, display and photographic merit.

Good luck.

Euphorbia cf. lamarckii, a somehow different yellow 'flower', mostly overseen, more so when growing between big, yellow flowered Opuntia. Flowering right now.
