Today's offering is a single Gladiolus flower on the stem, photographed indoors using available daylight only, and with a black card for b.g
The flowers immediately above and below had remained resolutely in bud only.

Details: ISO 200, 1.3 sec. at f/18.0 with Exp. Bias of -1.67 and using CWA metering. If time permits, viewing 'large' is worthwhile.

Many thanks for all the interest credited to "Autumn Leaves"......I had thought it might be regarded as a bit 'naff' so am pleasantly taken with your response.

Ronnie.

Camera:Nikon D700 Check out Nikon Nation!
Lens:Nikon 24-120mm. at 75mm.
