Another image from Merriments. I like the backlit buds, although, sadly, I think the flower is a bit featureless except on the underside of the petals.
Thank you for looking in and for your time.

Beautiful rim lighting. The flower has texture and depth on my monitor, very lovely in fact.

Before reading your descrip, I found myself drawn to the lovely backlit furriness of the buds and stalks.

Don't worry about the flower. It doesn't always have to hog the limelight Smile
