It looks like an alien life form. A lovely photo, the details of the stamen and the colours are excellent.

I'm amazed that you managed this handheld. Beautiful with great use of depth of field.

Thanks for all your comments Smile
Andrew (trahern) - I've always had a steady hand, and feel it's at least worth giving tricky shots a go. A tripod's always better though Wink The ISO800 made up for some of the wobbles in this shot .
Glad you like it.

Sorry, it is Saffron, and it is a herb made from the stamens of crocus, as expensive as gold, used mostly in rice dishes, to make this a golden yellow, and give it a very particular taste eg: paella. Thanx for the feedback (*:*)
