A gazania on the verge of showing off it's beauty in full. I changed the bg to black as there were too many distractions from garden. Lots of pollen and couldn't clone it all out, so slight buzz added. Gazanias are still in full bloom around here!

Man are you going to town, Laurie. I simply have to plant some of these next year. And then get a new camera and good macro lens. And then learn to see and frame them like this beauty. I love the rich earthy palette here--reminds me of the southwest. Listen to SuSana--she knows what she's talking about :)
