As were baby sitting and doggy walking yesterday, it was a chance to take our Amaryllis 'Aphrodite' in the KS Studio.
Hand held shot as I guess the tripod would have been toppled by either Finlay or Brodie.
I have deliberately omitted a border.

My thanks for all the supportive comments on Turbulence, and with special thanks to David {Big_Beavis} for his User Award.

Ronnie.

I know the feeling Ronnie, a tripod and the pups would not be a good idea, another great production from the studio. - gary

Gorgeous colours Ronnie.
A splendid close up.

(And the E-PM1 is a few years old now.I believe they are up to the E-PM5 now.I love using it for its compact size and the quality of image is good enough for me anyway !!)
