Interesting and unusual bud structure you are showing here. It is not easy to conceive how the flower in your previous post emerges from it. Nice photo though, kind of mystical!

Very Interesting photo. I like you depth of field choice.

@Bruce: Thank you, Bruce. When photographing in a public garden, I tend to use a shallow dof due to the closeness of other plants, which clutter the image. My aim is to blur them, and thus make them less distracting.

What amazing focus - right on the center of the bud - giving us a view into another tiny world. One that we rarely see.
