It is that time of year...around much of the Northern Hemisphere it is cherry blossom time. We usually look at them as clumps or clusters of flowers.

Here is a single flower.

Super macro, Peter, the colour is just perfect.
The single flower is seldom 'seen'.

See, this is exactly what I was looking for. I recently re-purchased that lens at $140 locally, still selling $500 USD at b&h nyc. Also the Lumix 14-42mm II, both are really good.

Now, in the right paper, this would be headlined "Nude Cherry shows off!"
