Gorgeous floral -- love the soft peach flowing into the white, the sharp focus on the center and the way the petals blend into the blurred background. Just spotted this in Editor's Picks. Congratulations, Gerri.

Thanks so very much Janet, Terry, Nikki, Carrie, Bojan, Marilyn, Shawn, Lisa, Sam, Judges and Randy for all the terrific supportive comments! Really appreciate them! I shot this on a recent spring flower show visit at our botanical gardens...interesting that these tulips were wide open on our way out the door, as the sun had come directly through the garden dome, so this was one of the last shots I took of the day on my way out. Over the years I have noticed that when I say to myself "let me just take one more shot", I end up finding that it might be one of my favorites of the day...just wondered if anyone else has that experience. Thanks for all the nice comments! :)
