Thank you, Cariad! Glad you like it! Now that my new mobile phone has a macro function in the camera I'll be experimenting with taking macro photos of these as they are in flower every month of the year! (I won't need to crop them any more!)

Forgive me for not knowing but what is a Macro function when it’s at home lol? Sounds good to have though :)

From what I understand it's a function that uses a powerful lens that allows you to get very close up photos, (practically touching the object you wish to photograph), but doesn't distort or blur the object.

Before you could take a close up photo but it would often be blurred . Or you could take it from a greater distance then crop the photo to the size you want. That is what I've been doing until I got this new mobile phone at the beginning of May. It has two lenses on the back & one is for the macro shots. If you tried to take a photo using it that's further away than a couple of inches all you get is a blur. The files are also smaller & therefore weigh less. Great news for GoY, at least until the problem of uploading photos bigger than 1mb was resolved!

Ah I see lol I didn’t know that’s what it was called, definitely much better, thank you for educating me 😆
