Lovely framing and soft focus Anita. I'm going to keep my eyes out for these flowers and perhaps try a few shots. Then, I will again realize your ability for such beautiful flower compositions.

I especially like the DOF which makes it seem as if they are rising towards us like bubbles or fireworks. And the white is very well done, too.

I know how tiny these little treasures are -- therefore, adding to the challenge of making such a lovely image. Impressive detail in the whites!
