Frost Daisy Wall Print

Quick guide to selecting your wall print:

1. Choose the type - canvas, photo paper or fine art paper. Need more details? See the wall prints guide.

2. Select the size - the options in the drop-down menu refer to the print before a frame is added (including any border). All images are produced in their original uncropped format, so the actual image size may vary depending on your selection.

Canvas prints: the full image covers the entire front face. There is no border and the edges are white. The size selected from the drop-down size menu will be the actual image size.

Photo paper or fine art paper (framed or unframed) - actual image size within the border will be:

Paper size: width x height  Actual image size: width x height
40cm x 30cm 28cm x 18.6cm
50cm x 40cm 40cm x 26.6cm
70cm x 50cm 54cm x 35.9cm

Description / Frost Daisy Wall Print

Frost Daisy © D’Artagnan Sprengel 2022. Wildlife Photographer of the Year is owned by the Natural History Museum, London.

11-14 Years, Highly Commended

Getting down to daisy-level, D’Artagnan lay on his frosty front lawn, using a macro lens to isolate a closed-up daisy head, focusing on the crystal-covered green bracts and pink‑blushed outer rim of petals. In the coastal climate of Auckland, New Zealand, winter frosts are infrequent, and so D’Artagnan was keen to explore the new crystalline dimension to his lawn.

Bellis perennis – meaning beautiful flower that does not lose its leaves in winter – is a European plant that has been introduced worldwide, including Australasia, where the beautiful flower – the ‘day’s eye’ – is regarded as a dominating invasive weed. As the light increases and the temperature warms, the flower head bends up and opens to face the sun, exposing its yellow ‘eye’, composed of tightly packed, tiny, tubular dual-sex florets, encircled by a rim of white female-only ‘ray florets’. Each flower head will track the sun across the sky before closing again for the night.

About the photographer (2022)

D'Artagnan has been taking photos since he was 10 years old. On his eleventh birthday he got his first DSLR camera and from there photography become his love, joy and passion. He now spends almost every minute of his spare time taking images and editing them. He mainly focuses on bird and macro photography, as there are few land mammals in New Zealand, but he also enjoys astro and landscape photography as well.
