It's been seven days since I took a picture of Audrey. Here she is this evening:
Quite a change for seven days. Here's a shot with a ruler, so you can get some idea of the size of the bud:
Getting a well-focused picture is proving to be tricky, because the garden is fairly breezy - we are near the top of a hill - and I have to wait for a calm moment in order to get a shot where Audrey isn't jigging about. An additional challenge, revealed by the telephoto lens, is the ambient cat hair in the environment. My first shots this evening were compromised by the presence of white cat fluff, courtesy of Percy (AKA Fernslayer).
