Daffodils in triplicate 6"x6" oil

The daffodils in the sunny back yard have come and gone but the ones in the shady front are just now in full bloom.   I was not aware until now that they come in different shades.  The ones in my front yard have a very orange/yellow center that are different from others I've seen.  I decided to light these so the brilliant yellow stands out from the grey background, actually it is a white surface but the light is focused on the flowers so the background value is much darker.  The white is not bright because the light is focused on the flowers not the surface.
