You are able to convey so much gentle sensuality with these macros . . when I try it, they look like botanic dissection guides !

Anita, I find myself "studying" your images for a lengthy period of time; attempting to soak in the image and appreciate all the image has to say. This particular image is another of those that I stood back away from the computer monitor to even appreciate more fully. It's from a distance that I can truly experience the subtle color, texture, and compositional design of this stunning image. Beautiful work...as usual.
