Good grief, Ms. Canada - I almost got my eye poked out opening this up! What a fantastic macro! Love the radiating orange color on the petals and the filament (very botanical wording here!:) rising waaay up and topped by (you're right!) a butterfly anther! Great observation and one of the best macros I've seen of the "innards" of a tulip!!! WTG!

Hayden, Linda, Val, Bobby, Liz, Nikki & Tammy ~ Thank you so much everyone for your kind comments! I really appreciate them all! :)

Val ~ Ms. U.S.A., sorry I almost poked your eye out! BTW, this is not a tulip, it's some kind of Lily ... but they look the same to me too! Ha! Ha! :)

Tammy Girl ~ I'll try to be more careful next time! LOL! :D
