Good grief, Ms. Canada - I almost got my eye poked out opening this up! What a fantastic macro! Love the radiating orange color on the petals and the filament (very botanical wording here!:) rising waaay up and topped by (you're right!) a butterfly anther! Great observation and one of the best macros I've seen of the "innards" of a tulip!!! WTG! #10022670
