This particular image brings so much for the viewer to discover and enjoy -- the subtle color variations, the lines (both of the petals AND the lines from the color variations), the texture of the petal. Nice work....as always. :)

Oooh... I love this. Everything's vague and ambiguous, but with just enough hint of clarity to tempt my eyes. Stunning! :)

Mesmerizing, Anita ... there's just a sliver of sharpness surrounded by the softness of those warm golden tones ...

Your macros are just incredible! You show us views of flowers we wouldn't ordinarily notice! Nice work!

@Betty: Thank you, Betty. This is exactly what I am trying to do. When I look through the viewvinder and discover new worlds, I want to share them with others.
