Thanks! This is such a great plant and I definitely did not need a macro lens, more like a wide angle lens! The camera lens was at eye level looking straight down.

Thanks for the HC and all the nice words! I didn't do much to it in PS. Just cropped it and increased overall saturation by about 10%. I did take about 10 photos and chose the best one.

Outstanding. Sharp, crisp and beautiful saturated colours. This Aloe only occurs on the highlands of Lesotho, Southern Africa and is on the Red Data list for endangered flora. It is targeted by plant poachers - one can see why.
