Plummeria Aloe Twist

What an unusual and effective pairing, Fax. I love the way the prickly curves of the aloe lead to the plumeria blossom. Just saw this in Editor's Picks -- congratulations. #1284051

Wonderful eye, Fax. Did you paint the lighting and hence orchestrate the eye's beautiful movement? Mother Nature often sets the scene, but the eye of the photographer and technique can enhance the image, or so I'm learning.

Congratulations on your find and creation --a well deserved POTD!

OH MY GOSH! Thank you everyone! I'm verklempt!
After I saw this and took the picture I replaced the fallen blossom with a fresh one. But that was not as good.
You can't beat Mother Nature!
Yes, Bunny, I adjusted levels and curves to bring up the highlights a little using Photoshop. #8738053
