This is a fantastic shot of this tulip. The pristine, highly detailed, image is exceptionally good! WOW shot for sure. I'm sorry to hear of your wrist break. With most cameras being essential "right-handed" trying to take a picture with your left hand will be challenge. Keep us posted as to your status now and in the aftermath of surgery.
