Yes, very nice, indeed. The only distraction is the branch in the foreground. There is a photographers rule that says never to remove any plant material in order to get a shot. In other words no cutting or sawing. However there is no rule that says you can't use a piece of tape to hold the offending branch out of the way temporarily! A very important item in your camera bag should be a roll of duct tape. You can get small rolls at a dollar store.

The branch was lying there on the groundin front of the flower. I left it as it was to use it as the frame. If you don't think of it as a frame, I guess I missed my goal. Or did you mean the little fuzzy branches? I hadn't even noticed them before. If that's it, yes I agree that I should have eliminated them before shooting. I'm still learning this photo stuff and I still have to get my mind more focused on composition.

Yes, it's the fuzzy branches I'm referring to.
