    Very nice job! I love the clarity of the photo. You see all the detail in this flower. I love how you add info on it as well.

    My desire in photography is to capture the essence of life, to make others catch their breath at the purity of the moment captured, I'm still working on that.

    Good Job PhotoRover. I like the fuzz on the ends and how you can see just the right amount of it-
