Challenge Photos - Exposure Reloaded

Your Challenge was to get a photo outdoors that depicts the current season.  It could be anything, but you were to use Aperture Priority mode and be creative.

Av Mode - ISO 200 - f/2.8 - 1/1250

It's probably a bit early for normal daffodils, but there are a few popping up in our garden and I've seen several blooming out and about.  Spring seems quite early this year, which is odd, because we've had quite a cold February.

I shot this daffodil just as the morning sun was tipping its rays onto the petal using my 70-200mm lens, at 200mm - so this is a telephoto shot.  I set the camera Av mode, and the Aperture to f2.8.  Initially I tried ISO 1600 because I am so used to the dark skies, but such a high ISO meant my Shutter Speed was 1/8000!  It didn't need to be that fast.  So I changed the ISO to 200 and the speed came down to 1/1250 - just right.

How did you do with your photo?  What did you shoot?  Post it somewhere and send me a link so I can see your images too.
