Very Nice Patrick. I like the glisten(the little bit of gleem of light on the petals), also the nice detail. Wonderful comp and detail.

Sometimes the undersides of things are the most beautiful (this is one example). I once had a photograph of the underside of a crab louse. It looked like a smiling face!
