What a beauty, Colleen, and so perfectly focused. No idea what it might be, though, sorry. Carol

Lovely capture of a very yellow whatever that is flower sprinkled with red rice crispies. Or to put it another way,
no idea what it is but its very nice and very well presented. Nice work Colleen.

You don't need to be on that course - you're a natural!
I think it is much harder to do selective focussing and make it look convincing than getting things sharp!
This is beautiful Colleen and I love the colour contrast.

A beautiful close up of your bloom which reminds me of Evening Primrose, but not sure that they have coloured stamens.

Beautiful example of how to make the most of shallow dof, Colleen, and perfectly cropped to fill the frame.

Either that or a kind of oenothera (evening primrose), either way it is lovely.
