Award Shortlist   


By CarolG  
I believe this is a chinodoxa, please correct me if I am wrong! It appeared in a tub of narcissi, quite unexpectedly, and I thought it worthy of a shot or two.

Now the bad camera decided to become sick yesterday, and needs to go to ther doctor, so goodness knows how long I am going to be without my trusty cam! Luckily I have a few pics stock-piled, which should keep me in uploads for a while.
