The subtle background really makes the thistle a thing of beauty. Great shot, Anita.

Well titled. And this little surprising pink flower is exquisite against that golden background.
A beautiful moment !

It really is delightful! How did you get it to glow? Nice shallow DOF, color, and composition.

@Julie L. Brown: Glad you like it. I'm not sure exactly which step caused the glow--probably the combination. I'm doing a lot more post-processing these days, and enjoying it, viewing it as part of the creative process. Here is what I did to the original image: crop, clone, darken and lighten specific areas, Colorize and Vignette Blur in Color Effex Pro, Viveza, Gaussian Blur for parts, saturation and curves. (Are you sorry you asked?)
Very Beautiful Anita! Well done!
