  • I like this point of view on this flower, and the bokeh too

  • it really jumps out of the screen! :D great shot!

  • your flowers always make me wish i was better at photographing flowers – this one is no exception – i love the colors and how the petal veins stand out.

  • Love the color of this rose… I am so ready for spring! The rose has an interesting shape while opening, almost tulip like.
