Weird... when I went to reply to your flower, a lighthouse image by Glenn Urquhart show up at the same time!
Anyway---just wanted to say congratulations on this stunner! Really beautiful! What lens are you using, if I may ask? (I'll be upgrading to a Canon SLR later this year, and love macros!)

Just saw this as Photo of the Day. Killer. Having the guts to do something unusual like cropping the flower right down the middle is what put this shot over the top. Congrats, Karen
