Another nice one amongst your portfolio. I must confess that the Gladiolus is one of my favorite flowers, and this Close up of one does it justice.

I like this crop. Lovely colours and I admit to liking this flower very much, one of the first ones I ever grew (pink) I was delighted with them as I am with this one.

Lovely shot. The only glads I have seen lately. Ours do terribly.
