I got my shot but "backed down" first..the unwavering eye contact was a bit unnerving.. lol Taken at the beautiful Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, TX.

  Amazing detail in this macro, Val! Your subject does look a bit menacing and one can't be too careful these days. Love the flowers, the color, and really everything about this image!

  I'll bet that wildflower center is a wonderful place to shoot, Ms.V. So you let him get to you? LOL. At least not before you got your fantastic close-up! Hope you're doing well, Ms.V!!
