Flying Cosmos

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 25 August 2008 in Plant & Nature.

This year my Cosmos bloomed late because I forgot they like poor soil and mistakenly planted the seeds in soil with lots of compost.
Taken indoors with window light, macro lens, tripod.

I like the limited depth of field which puts all the emphasis on the center of the blossom.
Fine color. I like how you placed the blossom in the frame too. Well done.
