The flower is a little weird looking, but the technical aspects are all there, composition, focus, lighting etc. Never saw a flower like that, it almost looks like a little monster which is complimented by the eerie background. Hey, it's early for me. I'll take another look when I get home from work. lol... Smile!

Beautifully captured, Viv. Is it some type of wild lilly? Wonderfully detailed against that smooth and shadowed b/g.SmileCat

Thanks all! Lol Amanda!! You are probably right - they look better not in macro. They grow on long thin stalks and look very delicate in groups - this is probably too in your face. I just think the markings are so wonderful. Viv
