Photography notes: Yellow Pimpernel flowers are tough to photograph for several reasons: They are held aloft on delicate stalks that wave in the slightest breeze; the individual flowers are ultra-tiny; the individual flowers are bright yellow, and thus difficult to expose properly; and the flower umbels spread out wide, making it difficult to focus on the entire group of flower umbels.
