    You should want it to rain every day if it looks this beautiful, Nobi.
Excellent color and detail.
Very very pretty

Morning glory!!!
I was so adore by this fascinating blue. One time I was try to smell it, maybe it's too close, the whole flower sucked over my nose, I can't breeze!!
Nice picture, Nobi!!

...you are funny, I don't think morning glory has any scent to it... it's my own opinion... although bees and flies come around, so it may...

Thank you Debra and Heather.

Heather,
This was taken using Fuji FinePix S7000 digital camera with Super EBC Fujinon. Its super macro mode performs very well. The focal range in Super Macro mode is 1 cm to 20 cm (.4 in to 7.9 in). I had the lens just about touching the flower.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for viewing the photo and taking the time to comment.
As you see this is a fairly old post.

I have not been doing much here at BP any more, and now I see I missed many great comments from people like you.
It's great see this photo and others are still being viewed every now and then.

Many thanks to you all !!!
