Great concept and composition. I am a little distracted by the darker gray structure behind the front stem. I can see the second stem just peeking out from behind that other gray part. I would be inclined to try and clone it out. But, that's a small picky point. I really like the unconventional viewpoint and soft colors.

Hi Mandy

Truly spectacular colours and exposure for this one. Well done! I can appreciate you're awaiting spring up there. We're still in a long hot summer down here...

Wow, you used a small aperture (f23) - but yes I know that is needed with macro photography, otherwise the very shallow depth of field can be TOO shallow.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul

Thanks Paul..yes we are so ready for spring here in Kansas,USA. Things are so brown and boring. The trees are budding a bit now and some flowers are starting to poke out of the ground. Shouldn't be long we hope.
