Playing around in the studio, 1/125 sec, f/13, 100 mm macro lens. Rotated 180 degrees. Couldn't decide which to post. The second I would call Swan Dive! What do you think?

I think they are both gorgoues, Janet! I like Swan Dive the best, though!

Swan Dibe is my favorite, I think. Both are just dandy, though.

LOL, Carolyn! Dibe is my brain this morning! Sometimes it is better to stick with 'as shot'. Thanks guys!

I especially love the one you "selected" for today. It is just beautiful! I love the background and the curve of the stem!

My vote is for "swan dive" because of its different angle of presentation, Janet ... though both are very beautiful!!
