Orange Marigold taken last weekend. I don't normally take flower pics, but wanted to try out my 70-300 lens. So, I mounted the camera on a tripod and gave it a go. There's a bit of plant matter on the stem just under the flower head. A friend wondered whether this was worth removing in Photoshop, but we decided it was a natural part of the plant so left it in. Feedback appreciated. Thanks, AC.
