We bought this little flower on Saturday. OK...I will admit it...I bought this flower...first time I've ever purchased a flower, with the primary purpose to photograph it. What's wrong with me?? :-) I'm not looking for response to that question!

You asked for a response by asking not to respond to that question, Ken!!! Silly young man that you are! That being said...you did a super fantastic job of capturing the beauty of these flowers!!!!! Love the selective focus on the first one and the awesome details on the second one plus the wonderful colors on both of them!!!! You ROCK man!!!! :-) ♫ k

Outstanding macro, Ken. And, Yes, purchasing flowers for photography is a disease. Hold on to your wallet, it gets worse! The other day I went to florest to purchase a flower. They wanted $175.00 for one stem of an orchid! Needless to say, I got the gerber daisy...LOL

You are too funny, Ken -- and a big man to admit the truth!! Just kidding, there's no problem with buying your subjects -- hey, if I could buy a TBird just to shoot it, I sure would, LOL! Wonderful image, just spectacular!
