Brenda from Canton, United States

Oh, I LOVE this rich burgundy and the way you have captured all the delicate veins in each petal. The spiral shape in the center is fascinating - going round and round, pulling us in. Beautifully contrasted against the pale, pastel green background.

gorgeous photo painting of a strikingly beautiful flower.
(i've got some in my garden, too, the first signs of spring ...)

@franz: Thank you! These shy flowers are challenging to photograph. That is why I planted some in my garden so I cut cut a flower, bring it inside and position it so I could photograph the gorgeous center.
