Perfect Petal Plumage

By NDODS    
My second flower up load of the week, this time the heart of a Clematis who has lost her fine purple petticoats. The image was captured in the garden after a rather wet and windy evening, "Which as you will know?", is not good for the delicate shape and form of this wonderful but relatively short lived flower.

Thank you so much for all you're encouraging comments and words of support regarding yesterdays upload, and a special mention to; Mickyr (Michael) for is most most welcomed User Award.

I sincerely hope that you all have a great day ahead. For me I shall simply take the take as it comes.

Regards Nathan

I like those colours and beautiful symmetric shape, Nathan. I would never imagine it would look so nice without the petals.
Super image Nathan, great dof and colour
