A beautiful start to the week here...
Thank you for all your warm messages and comments again yesterday..
I loved the movement of this flowers petals gently moving in the breeze. I used a tripod but not a fast shutter speed to try and capture a bit of movement....tomorrow I will show the top of the flower...
