This is so cool, Merna. I love the colors, with the deep blue fuzz. Great macro detail. The S shaped curve of the stems make it too. I expect to see this again. Hope you are okay. I think of you often.

Hi Michelle:I debated with myself about this image because it was not sharp all over. My friend, Rita encouraged me to have faith and enter it; I learned a lesson about wanting perfection and to expect this in a Macro shot. A lesson learned and honored and thankful for the award thank you, thank you! Merna

Hi Merna

I am so sorry I have missed it the first time. I have not had time to look at any of the wonderful photos you and other photographers have posted.

This is so amazing. Absolutely outstanding. It almost pops out of the screen. Despite all your troubles you can produce something of this quality. You are an example for me. I just hope I can use you as my role model and have your strength.

I am so happy for you my dear friend.
