So small it could easily be overlooked.
A nice subject with some fine detail in the tiny stamen. However the image would benefit from a much tighter crop. The leaves dominate the shot and distract the viewer form the flower. Maybe a tight crop leaving just the last two leaves would be more appealing. Also had you altered your viewpoint to allow us to see more detail of the flower head...whilst not straight on, at a slight angle for us to see a hint of the centre. When using a black background, I often have to use the selection tool to highlight all the background and then increase the saturation and decrease the light. This results in a much more solid background for you. Hope this helps a little?
A secret, you are right of course, the problem with this particular flower, the only one on a tiny bush bordering a road was that (don't tell anyone) it was half a flower, the other petals had gone so I tried to get the stamen to draw attention away from, what to me was obvious, there were no back petals. You are a great help thanks Mike.
Sorry I uploaded the variant twice.
