Look at the lovely wave of that stem, bejewelled with little graduating pink hearts, and the foliage that has a beauty of its own, standing tall and proud.
You may have guessed, I love the dicentra.
A presentation which simply glorifies its attributes, Ray.

A beautiful plant that looks good against the dark background and its so well positioned in the frame, if it keeps getting better I can't wait for next time.

Would be very difficult to capture outdoors as these delicate stems wavy around so readily in the slighest breeze: capturing them indoors allows you to control so many factors and you have done a fine job with this spray, Ray.
