Well, certainly worth the wait. One of my favorite floral shots of your outstanding collection. I love the way these petals seem to be enfolding the stamen, which you have captured in such amazing detail. The textured green background is such a lovely contrast with the gradations of pink in the petals. And always, such lovely light.
