So no-one noticed one Narcissus is named 2 y-y

I asked Kirby what his set up is for the photos
"Hi Mark,
     I use a Canon EOS 20D camera with a 50 millimeter macro lens.  I carry
a blue cloth to use as a background.  I have to fold it to transport it,
and the fold sometimes show in the photographs.  At some of the shows, I
was able to use dark table covers hung vertically.  Often it's the same
material as used in covering the tiered staging.  At Rongotea I did not
have time to set up any background and had to photograph the exhibits in
place with a hand held camera.  As long as the background is at least
twice as far from the flash as the flower, it will go dark, almost black,
in the photos, as long as the color of the background was medium dark in
the first place."

Hi, Malcolm, great to have you posting! You must have some lovely "babies" to make these bright daffs!

Excellent, Malcolm, we'll look forward to that. Also you can give us your opinion on how we are doing with our daffs as they come into season over here!
