Many thanks to all who voted and commented on "lines of Gold" .. I very much appreciate it Smile

Today's image is slightly offbeat and abstract. I had a bunch of gerberas and I wanted to get a reflection in the water drops. If you look closely, you can see the red and orange gerbara reflecting, resembling a pair of eyes Smile)

Thank you for looking Smile

Fantastic detail in the reflection, really well executed, Anna. Not totally sure about whether you've got the best crop out of the image, though. The foreground out of focus petal and droplets are a bit too prominent for me and slightly distracting on an otherwise tremendous capture. (Sorry, just a personal observation).
