Marvellous shot, Ed. How you managed to get that DOF so close up with an aperture of 5.3 beats me.

Beautiful flower Ed. Caught the raindrops just in time I feel; they did not need to be heavier.

Just caught up with your recent features, Ed. As usual, a well-taken, varied & interesting collection with the "sunny" factor predominant throughout.
