Jpining the crowd of admirers Paul. Sorry on my comment I called you Paula, slip of the finger. Is this taken with a macro and did you do any work in PS? I would like to learn how to take such excellent photos.

Thank you all for so many nice comments.

I did use Ps for saturation,
the shot wat taken at lunch time, on a sunny day in Ottawa.
Manual white balance, spot metering.
