I personally love this shot.
Don't know the name of the flower but would like your input on the results.

Looks like a petunia to me. But Im not a flower buff. Its a very good shot if you dont mind the blades of grass in front of the flower. If your thoughts were that having them there was ideal to you then you did well. However, if you dont like the blades there then you should have removed them. Plucking a few blades is easier than trying to clone them out in Photoshop or taking criticism by goofs like me.

I learned that it is a Pansy.
Interesting what people see in a photo.
You both mention the blades of grass being a distraction. When I took the picture, I was not even aware of them.
When viewing it later, to me, the blades of grass are the whole picture. Are they behind or in front of the flower?
The transparency adds a mystique.
This would be difficult to duplicate if you wanted to.

Good shot, the blades of grass give a feeling of finding beauty hidden in the grass.
