Taken at Longwood Gardens a few weeks ago. That was the morning I forgot to put a recharged battery in my camera and ran out of battery power after only 30 minutes.

Unusual and effective comoposition - with the flower brushing the edge of the frame and shooting from behind - it seems as if the background bokeh is floating out of the center of the flower. Beautiful texture work.

Nice work, as usual. How disappointing to have your battery run out! Did you have to drive far to get there?

@Julie L. Brown: Thanks! Not too far, 40 minutes.
