Carolyn M. Fletcher 4/12/2005 6:50:43 AM

Wow, this is IT, huh?? I guess I better run back over there and see if I can find it to preserve it for future generations. When I saw your title, I was afraid it was going to be a shot of one of us flat on the ground or something. LOL..

Shot in Honor Heights Park in Muskogee, OK with 100mm macro. This pink dogwood blossom had fallen during the overnight storm onto a lichen covered boulder. I repositioned it so that it would lay flat for my shot. Minimal post processing in PSCS.
