D200 Red Poppies C&C welcome
Don't you hate that! I've had similar challenges. This leaf was in some great light on a tree but obscured by some brown leaves, it snapped off and I ended up shooting it against the ground clutter, but the ligth wasn't there.
Some of these shots are just trickier than people realize.
