Thank you, all who looked in on "Femme Fatale"! Especial thanks to Graham (digital_boy, Leon (Tibetan), Gary (Growmore), Lillian & Ray (Billyray) for those wonderful UAs. I'd left the image on my EHD so long, as I was so uncertain about it. Today is the turn of another from the EHD, so fingers crossed you like it too!

Just in case you wonder, it's the centre of a Tulip.

If I have had to resort to just a click when viewing some of your images, sorry. I'm finding the site very slow at the moment and sometimes it has taken nearly 3 minutes for some images to show and had to rely on the tiny thumbnail versions.

I'm so glad you're unearthing all these beauties from your EHD, Ann Smile Wowww.

What a wonderful frame-filling close-up! The detail is amazing...I mean, look at the pollen. But my favourite part of this has to be the petals, especially those beautiful purpley bits.

This is SUCH a pleasure to look at.
