I have no idea what flower this is, but the photography is superb! The clean background, stem serving as an excellent leading line, and sharpness of the flower is fantastic. I am always amazed at what nature can do without our intervention! Fantastic shot.   Posted: 05/10/2020 12:50:28

Simply beautiful, love the detail.
The stem leads right into the main subject matter, which is tack sharp.   Posted: 05/18/2020 12:01:14

The depth of field, exposure and the sharpness of the image is unbelievable. Can't say anything more than well done.   Posted: 05/19/2020 01:11:35
