Thank you Shelly, I am truly flattered.
I couldn't walk by the garden yesterday, just too much to see. I am glad I could capture it and share.

Wow, this brings real tears to my eyes!
I was floored that I won and it truly made my day, heck the whole month! This is a wonderful supportive group which I appreciate, words can not express how much.

Thank you Cindy, Piotr, Terry, Susana, Amanda, Jill, Khawla, Ken, Wendy, Kay, Cathy, LJ, Kathleen, Stephanie, and Kerby for your comments and congradulations.
I remember this day in the garden, I was supposed to go out but I couldn't pass up shooting. A morning I will remember! I have to give credit to one of the am's on my other site that saw my first version and coached me into reshooting. Thanks again Glenn!

Kevin this was taken in natural lighting, sun to my back. The lens was a 180 macro with 2x converter. It had rained previously and the sun had come out brightly.

Thank you Irene and Kevin
