That is one healthy milkweed plant, and you captured it beautifully! I love the shallow depth of field with the nicely blurred background (bokeh). I also like how you retained the subdued red color. Wonderful lighting and composition as well. I cannot suggest anything to improve it.   Posted: 07/03/2024 15:58:12

Hi Dick,
This is a lovely image. Great color and texture on the milkweed. Well exposed. The sharp details against the out of focus background worked well. Nice job.   Posted: 07/04/2024 19:35:51
