Kudos here, Monika! This is really lovely... I like the companion bud in this composition with the bloom, it gives the composition a lot of interest and an extra focal point. Marvelous detail!

Thank you so much for all your great comments on this image, everyone! While missing the summer colors and searching my photo library I was really pleased finding these flowers, and I am really glad it somehow appealed to you! Once again thank you!
