Ah, a new favorite. I love the interaction of your favorite subject - flowers - with the bigger, natural world. Gorgeous texture work - as always. And a great interpretation of the song title theme.

@Lougris: Thank you for your comment. Although the sun wasn't hot when I took the photo, it did get hot later. I hadn't thought of how the image creates the impression of heat. Thanks.

Pretty! I'm curious...are any of the textures you use available as presets for Lightroom?
