very low morning light so I set the ISO to 640. I shot it in AV mode so I just checked and the speed varied from pic to pic from 1/300 to 1/800

Thanks

I love them. My mother has a hell of a garden and they come in the numbers.  Great pictures as usual

Excellent photography. You are a digital artist. Certainly puts my cell phone photos to shame....
