The light in this closeup brings up the already-beautiful tulip and its colors several notches, Frank. And I'm fascinated by that leaf with the coral "babies" emerging. What's THAT all about? Never saw such a thing, and it's another reason to see this as a very special capture. Great job, my friend!
