Hi there Barbara
This is a fantastic macro image - the vivid colours are brilliant.
Very nicely done.
(Haven't had much time on BP due to my daughter needing the internet for Uni, it is her last emax tomorrow - so I should have lots more time on the internet now).
Hope you had a nice weekend, catch up again soon.
