IMHO one of your very best Jon. Top quality macro photography with superb detail, tones, dof and magnificent textures. The soft translucency of light shining through the neck and the tiny bubbles of liquid are remarkable. Love it.

Popped back as promised and boy was it worth it. I couldn't see the bubbles or the black dot on the stalk on the iphone. Probably the best macro I have seen for a long time Jon and thoroughly deserving of a HC.
