Delicate beauty

This is a Snakes Head Fritillary (Fritillaria meleagris) taken in the wild last year.

 

Lighting is natural, the sun is shining through it from above (and slightly behind), there's a reflector placed in front of the camera to light the side facing us too.

 

The white background is actually a cloud in the sky.

 

I hope you like it, and don't forget you can buy prints of a selection of my images here :)
