I saw it being blown off the tree by the wind. I had just mounted my brand new macro lens. I had no flash and no tripod. Behind me there was this Freshly Washed Black car, it was early morning with a few white clowds and a deep blue sky. Yellow flower... Blue sky.. Black Background... New Lens... You do the Math.

This has got to be my most prized Flower foto because I was at the right place and the right time.

I re-processed it with the new Nikon NX2 software and I am pleased with the results.

I hope you like it too.
