Pretty picture: Narcissus cv. (Cold fusion)

If properly installed and maintained, a Cold Fusion Daffodil can supply up to 20% of your home's energy needs for twenty years or more! Buy yours today!

Another case of getting a weird effect through error. (The fogged lens thing in the previous post was better, but still.) What I find interesting about this picture is not so much that the flower is overexposed as that nothing else in the shot seems to be: it looks like somebody's heated a daffodil to white-hot, and the daffodil is illuminating the picture.

I'll take a half-dozen, please, to stuff in my boots.

I hate this problem. It happens to me all the time when I am trying to get a close-up of one of my Aglaonema leaves (which are all rather glossy). The flash just reflects like crazy. I need to get a non-crappy camera so I have a little more control of the flash and exposure time.

If I buy 5 will I be able to disconnect the house from the grid?
