This PUTS US IN A DIFFERENT world! A different REALITY! Wow, Mumj! Your title is soooooo fitting. Even two of the inner most parts are touching, not just the many many little fingers there! I don't have the words to say it but this is utterly fantastic...I FEEL THIS IMAGE! TOTALLY!

BRAVO! I see Gold.

Congratulations on this deserved win. As a biologist I am also curious what is actually shown on this beautiful and very sharp flower macro. It seems that the male parts of the flower are leaning in on the female part of the flower. That the middle of the flower is not just symmetric makes it more interesting. Great picture.
